Domaine Louis Chèze Saint Joseph Red Cuvée Rô-Rée, 2017

£24.45

Category: France, RHÔNE, Domaine Louis Chèze, 2017

Starting out in 1978 with just 1 hectare of vineyard, today Louis works around 30 hectares of vines spread across the Northern Rhône appellations of St Joseph, Condrieu and Pays des Collines Rhôdaniennes. Not a man for the limelight, Louis lets his wines do the talking for him. The reds are aged in barrel, using a mélange of eight different coopers to achieve his house style of silky texture, lilting perfume, and supple sanguine finishes. The whites are fermented in barrel and tend to show explosive aromas and rich, almost oily textures.
