Maison Les Alexandrins Saint-Joseph Rouge 0.75 2018
Region : Northern Rhône
The Saint Joseph terroir is mainly composed of granitic soils. The vineyard stretches for 40 km along the right bank of the Rhone. Since the first vintage in 2007, a balance has been sought in the wine, using grapes from the north of the appellation to bring minerality and fruit, and from its heart for structure. Blending creates a distinctive wine with excellent balance.
