Vins de Vienne St. Joseph 2010
Syrah/Shiraz from Rhone, France
According to a legend, during the 9th century, Charlemagne was quite fond of the wines produced from these slopes. At the time, they were called "Mauves", the name of a village situated at the heart of the appellation. During the 17th century, the Jesuits of Tournon dubbed them Saint-Joseph in tribute to the Virgin Mary's husband.
Wine Spectator - "A well-structured style, with chalk and savory threads stitching the core of black cherry, red currant and anise together. There's a long, racy feel through the finish, with a mouthwatering edge. "

About France - Other regionsWhen it comes to wine, France is a classic. Classic blends, grapes and styles began in the country and they still remain. Think about it - people ask for a Burgundian style Pinot Noir, they refer to wines as Bordeaux or Rhone blends - Champagne even had to pass a law to stop international wineries from putting their region on the label of all sparkling wine.
