Style des vins

While developing a certain power, the red Saint Joseph is elegant and fine. Its blackcurrant and raspberry aromas, followed by liquorice and leather, characterise it after a few years' cellaring, and its flavours are often appreciated after around ten years.

The white Saint Joseph has scents of acacia, honey and apricot.
