M. Chapoutier – Les Granilites 2016 – Saint-Joseph

The nose is fresh, fruity, juicy, elegant, aromatic and gourmand. The wine needs to be put in carafe. It reveals notes of juicy mirabelle plum, quince and small notes of juicy peach combined with small touches of lemon, dried mandarin zest, hints of apricot, pineapple, racy minerality as well as a very discreet toasted hint, beeswax, butter, almond and an imperceptible hint of flowers (in the background). The palate is fruity, round, suave, gourmande, elegant, racy and offers a beautiful finesse, a beautiful delicacy, precision as well as a beautiful grain. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy apricot, fleshy peach / brugnon and small notes of quenette associated with touches of mirabelle plum, quince, citrus fruit as well as hints of vanilla / butter, beeswax and an imperceptible hint of almond. Good length and beautiful persistence.
