FROM THE FAMED HERMITAGE PRODUCER!

"Plenty of honey and peaches with a rich, ripe mouthfeel. The palate delivers immense weight and exceptional textural richness in a seamless shape. Finishes with concentrated peach fruit flavors. Really powerful. Tank sample." (JS)

Winery Notes:
Varietals:Roussanne

Soil:Granite

Vineyard Age:5-60 years

Vineyard Location:
The vineyards for Céleste are located in Mauves on granitic slopes. This white St Joseph differs from the white Hermitage in that the soil of white Hermitage (clay and limestone) gives softness and suppleness to the wine whereas the granite soil expresses a wonderful minerality which perfectly accompanies food and gives an additional sense of vivacity.

Vinification:
Fermentation 100% in barrel. Aged in barriques for 14 months.
