A real insider's Rhone. Domaine Jean Claude Marsanne is just a stone's throw from JL Chave, this little-known winemaker delivers top-level Saint Joseph Syrah at a still reasonable price.
He used to sell all of his grapes to one of the Rhone's (if not the world’s) top Syrah producers J L Chave, a clear indication of simply outstanding quality. Since bottling under his own label, it took place in French Michelin starred restaurants. Yields are low and come from small vineyards, only 1,500 cases produced and only a little part of this is available for private drinkers.
Very complex and addictive. Silky with huge depth to the rich and opulent dark fruit all supported by vibrant acidity and firm yet velvety tannins. This is delicious already and will only get better.
From an outstanding vintage, this is one of the best Saint-Joseph Syrah!
