2011 Jean-Louis Chave Selection Saint-Joseph Céleste Blanc


I’ll take your Saint-Joseph and raise you a Saint Mary. Hehehe. Waxy apples, pears, florals, cotton balls, white tea, and a hint of bay leaf on the nose. Browning apples and lemons on the palate along with white tea and white florals. Super round and coats your mouth without being viscous. Incredible with food. If you aren’t jammin’ on Marsanne and Roussanne, you’re missing out! Lovely stuff.

Thanks for the shout out! We love all the whites (and reds) from Chave.
