Domaine Jean Louis Chave Saint Joseph
Wine: Saint-Joseph Rouge
Appellation: Saint-Joseph AOC
Tournon: The oldest vines in the Saint-Joseph, some dating to the early 1900s. The soil is granite mixed with clay. Holdings on Dardouelle, with more clay in its lower reaches, and Les Oliviers, known for its rich wines with milder tannins.
Mauves: More acid granite slopes. Holdings on Les Côtes, the most southerly site in Mauves, and Sapelias.
St-Jean-de-Muzols: From Pichonnier, with less rich, smaller granite particles, a site that gives more generous wines with riper tannins.
Lemps: From Bachasson, with a neutral soil makeup comparable to Bessards on Hermitage.
Vinification: The grapes are vinified at the Domaine using indigenous yeasts in wood tonneaux and stainless steel tanks, then aged for 15-18 months in barriques.
