One of the best Saint-Joseph of the market, if this isn't the best, in magnum!
St. Joseph of dark Ruby color. On the nose we have intense perfumes, red fruit (blackcurrant) and violet, in final of the spicy notes (nutmeg, pepper), but also of liquorice and vanilla. The mouth is elegant and long with a solid tannic structure with melted tannins.
