Saint-Joseph Chapoutier Deschants 2015

R459.00

Region: Saint-Joseph, N Rhone

Tasting note

A very good example of full-blooded Syrah, with a deep black-ruby colour. The aroma is generous- meaty, smoky and earthy, all of which follows through to the flavour, which is firm, concentrated and chewy. The fruit, tannins, acidity and alcohol are all in perfect harmony. 80% of the wine was matured in oak barrels of varying sizes between 225L and 800L. The rest remained in stainless steel tanks, which accounts for the fresh balance.

Food pairing

A great drink now, especially when served with Cassoulet ( a slow-cooked pork/duck and white bean stew ), Moroccan lamb barbecue or beef stew. Showing many of its colours now, but will be even better in five years’ time.
