"From a single lieu-dit and granite soils, the 2014 St Joseph la Couronne de Chabot sports a ruby/purple-tinged color as well as an overriding elegance and purity that makes it a joy to drink. Rose petals, raspberries, framboise, strawberries and spring flower notions all flow to a medium-bodied, seamless, impeccably balanced St Joseph that has fine tannin and a supple, silky finish. Drink this beautiful St Joseph through 2024."
In the Rhone Valley, or through the most beautiful regions of France and the world, the Maison M. CHAPOUTIER lets the terroir express itself.
unctuous, ample with warm tannins. According to the vintage, the wine can be kept from 30 to 60 years, indeed from 50 to 75 years.
Selective hand picking at maturity.
The soil, typical of the appellation Châteauneuf-du-Pape, is composed of big quartzite shingles and sandy red clay.
Vinifications are made in concrete tanks. Grapes are destemmed and the vatting lasts around 3 weeks, in order to polymerize the tannins. Only the free-run juice is used to make this wine.
