From young Northern Rhone winemaker Aurelien Chatagnier (who worked with Domaine Jamet and Francois Villard before starting his own domaine in 2002) comes his excellent 2015 Saint-Joseph Rouge. 2015 was a "vintage of a lifetime" in the Northern Rhone and this Saint-Joseph shows why. Organically farmed from granitic soils and sourced from four parcels in four towns: Ardoix, Charnas, and Malleval Limony. 100% destemmed fruit and aging for 12 months in new French oak. A superstar.
