Clos Saint Joseph Côtes de Provence Rouge, France 2016
Roch Sassi is the only grower to bottle any wine from these incredibly rocky slopes. His vineyard is sounded by limestone walls giving this part of Côtes de Provence a uniquely cool micro climate. The conditions allow for full ripening at remarkably low alcohol levels, maintaining lively fruit and bright acidity in the wines.
