Winemaker Notes

The 2017 M. Chapoutier Saint-Joseph Les Granits is a very deep garnet red. Black fruit jams, smoked with mineral overtones. The palate is smoky with peppered notes; tight tannins with a long persistency in the mouth.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JD 96
Jeb Dunnuck

Deeply colored, the 2017 Saint-Joseph Les Granits is all Syrah from that appellation’s namesake vineyard and was brought up in just 20% new French oak (a mix of demi-muids and barrels). It has a stunning bouquet of blackcurrants, blackberries, ground pepper, scorched earth, and graphite. This carries to a rich, medium to full-bodied, powerful Saint Joseph that has beautiful depth, no hard edges, and a great, great finish.

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2017 Saint-Joseph Les Granits is packed with licorice and blueberries, yet it walls them off under notes of crushed stone and an impressive structure. It's full-bodied and intense, laden with potential, but I wouldn't touch a bottle for at least a couple of years.

JS 93
James Suckling

A very moody nose with smoke, graphite and gunflint, as well as ripe dark plums and blueberries. The palate is nicely detailed and delivers licorice and dark-plum flavors that hold fresh, amid succulent tannins. Drink or hold.

No name is more closely associated with the greatness of the Rhone valley than Chapoutier.

The history of the Chapoutier family stretches back to the early nineteenth century when current owner Michel Chapoutier's great-, great-, great-grandfather Marius purchased an estate and some vineyards in the now famous village of Tain l'Hermitage in the Northern Rhône Valley. Marius Chapoutier made history in the region when he became the first grape grower there to vinify his own fruit. Marius had tasted wines other winemakers produced using his fruit and he realized that something was lost in translation, so to speak. He knew that he owned some of the best growing sites in the appellation and he believed — rightly — that the grapes grown in his vineyards could produce long-lived world-class wines. In a move unusual at the time, he decided that he should make the wine himself. Not only did the quality of the wines increase greatly, but this move provided the capital to expand the Chapoutiers’ already legendary estate.

A visionary and pioneer in biodynamic winemaking, his restless energy and unconditional commitment to quality have produced tremendous success, with the most 90+ point ratings of all Rhône producers and 16 "100 point" rated wines.
