Domaine des Hauts Chassis - ST Joseph AOC 2017 - Northern Rhone
Very feminine Syrah, with peppers, peony flower and white peppers notes.
The tannins are soft and very enjoyable.
The "Domaine des Hauts Châssis" is located in the south of the Crozes-Hermitage appellation. The surface of the estate is 17 hectares and only 1.5 hectares in St Joseph.
Franck Faugier took over the family estate and has been vinifying since 2003. "From the vine to the cellar, it is the respect of the fruit and of the vine that we support : work of the ground, supervised control, grape harvest in green, manual stripping, manual grape harvest, picking off, treading during the wine making, and a controlled maturing in order to offer you all the pleasure of the fruit and the complexity of the Syrah."
