‘Orange marmalade, quince, salty minerality, white flowers, celery seed, and a touch of spice all emerge from the 2019 Saint Joseph Les Granits Blanc, which comes from one of the top terroirs in the appellation. Playing in the more full-bodied end of the spectrum, this incredible Saint-Joseph Blanc has a rounded, layered texture, a terrific sense of freshness and purity, classic Marsanne structure, and a great finish. It's certainly in the same realm as the 2018 and I'll be a buyer.’ – Jeb Dunnuck, 96/100

‘The brassy-hued, full-bodied 2019 Saint-Joseph Les Granits Blanc is 100% Marsanne, barrel fermented and matured. Ripe and opulent, with notes of honeyed citrus, toasted grain, pineapple and melon, it's silky-textured and long on the finish. This is surely one of the stars of the appellation, with perhaps a decade of longevity ahead of it. 2021-2030’ – Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate, 94/100

‘Distinctly smoky and flinty nose. Rich and full with marzipan richness and a good sense of freshness – a rounded style with opulent fat weight and perhaps lacking a touch of acidity. 2021-2025’ – Alistair Cooper MW, JancisRobinson.com, 16.5/20

Producer information Michel Chapoutier is the ultimate overachiever. Not only do his thrilling single-vineyard wines set the benchmark for the entire Rhône Valley, but he also produces some of the best value wines on the planet. With a 200-year history, wines from all corners of the Rhône and supreme quality throughout, Michel Chapoutier is the king of the Rhône Valley. Organic and biodynamic farming principles, together with traditional winemaking in top appellations, produce structured wines with long ageing potential. The wines tend to be generous, but each one speaks of its terroir and shows immaculate balance.
