An outstanding Northern Rhone Valley, France Syrah from the the northern portion of the 30 mile long appellation along the Rhone River. The Vincent Cluzel Saint Joseph 2016 offers up blueberry and dark wild cherry smells and flavors as it dances with classic sensations of smoky black olive, soy sauce, black pepper and bacon. Both pretty & uplifting and dense & chewy, this shows the quality and value you can get from high quality Saint Joseph. I just bought a six pack for myself (no lie). Drink now through 2025.
Vincent Cluzel’s family owns and farms vineyards in Condrieu and St Joseph. They sold all their grapes until 2012, when Vincent Cluzel started making his own wine. He studied his winemaking craft while working for Yves Cuilleron. Cluzel also makes a delicious Condrieu.
