Xavier Gérard Saint-Joseph Le Blanchard 2016


This is a deeply coloured syrah wine from Xavier Gérard in Saint-Joseph in the northern Rhône valley.  One sniff however and it is immediately a vin de terroir with its very distinctive aroma of rosemary and spice.  The palate is dry, full bodied and made in a ripe and approachable style with mid weight tannins.  Good length on the finish completes the picture.  Rating: Good to Very Good. Abv: 13.5%. Price: $70.
