Saint-Joseph Rouge 2020 La butte d'or Alain Jaume 2020
From the southern part of the appellation of the same name, this Saint-Joseph is a blend of two vineyards on slopes facing east and southeast.
The grapes are hand-picked, selecting only healthy and ripe grapes. Aged in oak barrels with 10% new barrels.
The nose of this wine shows typical aromas of pepper and red fruit jam. On the palate it is well balanced, full-bodied and intense, with a long finish and very well ripened tannins. A wine with character, still in the process of maturing, which should be kept for 6 to 8 years.

More about this wine
In the 14th century, Pope John XXII built a palace in the village of Châteauneuf. He and his heirs, impressed by the exceptional terroir, planted vineyards around the castle on terraces covered with smooth rounded limestone pebbles. Thus was born one of the most famous and valued appeals in the world: Châteauneuf du Pape. The Jaume family has been dedicated to the art of making wine since 1826. Alain Jaume wines have a huge potential to age and are rich, rich and complex. They reflect and embody the superb terroir of the southern Rhone Valley.All wines of the same producer
The Rhone Valley is a long, narrow strip in the south of France. In practice, this region is divided into two sub-regions, each with its own type and identity - North and South Rhone. The northern part is best known for its legendary and long-lasting red wines, mainly from Syrah grapes: Hermitage, Ivory Coast, St. Joseph and Cornas, as well as the fragrant white Viognier from Condrieu. The south is home to the full Chateauneuf-du-Pape and Gigondas, as well as the light Rose of Tavel. Chateauneuf-du-Pape can be a blend of up to 13 different varieties, 3 of which are even white. This is the main difference between it and Gigondas, where white varieties in the blend are not allowed. The most famous of these main red varieties are Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah and Cinsault, and the white ones are Roussanne, Marsanne and Viognier.More wines of this region
Syrah/Shiraz - Two names of one and the same grape variety - the winemakers from the Old world use Syrah and the ones from the New world - Shiraz. The grape is a deep red, even the pulp, therefore this variety is not suitable for blanc de noir wine style. Syrah wine has specific floral aromas in its youth and develops notes of herbs and spices such as white and black pepper as it ages. These varietal specifics come out better when blended with a small amount of Viognier - a method gaining popularity more and more around the world. Syrah produces wines capable of ageing and improving over decades, which enhances its plummy and almost oriental spicy flavours.More wines of the same variety
