Made from 50 and 70 year old vines, the Grisières shows how talented André is as a winemaker. This is elegant and floral, with intense fruit and a ripe, fresh texture. Long, serious and intense, with wonderful finesse, we wish there was more.
Due to tiny quantities and high demand this wine is limited to 12 bottles per customer.
While Perret is most widely known for his Condrieu, he makes a duo of beautiful St Joseph reds, and these latest 2015s are the greatest wines I’ve tasted from him. Even bigger, richer and more concentrated, the inky purple/blue-tinged 2015 Saint Joseph les Grisieres is the top wine of the estate and is raised in barrel. Blackberries, blueberries, pepper, earth and a liqueur of rocks-like quality all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, pure, gorgeously layered beauty. It has lots of tannins, but they’re polished and sweet. Don’t miss a chance to latch onto a few bottles.
