Colour: garnet red with purple highlights.

Nose: Intense wild dark berry notes (blackcurrant, blackberries), mineral notes (graphite), underscored by lovely, smooth oakiness.

Palate: soft and well-balanced on entry. Fine, tight tannins, beautiful mineral tautness derived from the granite.

Long-lasting finish with lovely dark berry notes.

Beef or Venison Wellington.

The parcels of vines are located in the districts of Charnas, Tournon and Mauves, where the principal soil and climate components that make for great Saint-Joseph wines can be found. Here there is granite terrain formed by geologic alteration, and content carried in by the wind ensuring that the soils are good for water filteration and restriction.

The altitude and wind exposure (including the Mistral) ensure natural regulation of pests while providing freshness throughout the summer. These kinetics of slow maturation, give "Granilites" a potential for freshness, minerality and a particularly interesting tautness.
