Originally, 4 plots were involved in its development. The white Saint-Joseph cuvée " Quatuor " is made up of 50/50 Marsanne and Roussanne grape varieties. A perfect accord between the floral notes and the fruity side!
 
  • Grape varieties : 50% Marsanne, 50% Roussanne.
  • Soil of granitic nature covered with gneiss and decaying schists.
  • 4 plots go into its production.
  • Average yields : 40 hl / ha.
  • Wine-making process : Manual harvest.
  • Destemmed harvest for skin maceration for 24 hours.
  • Vinification in oak barrels with temperature control.
  • Aging on lees and regular stirring for 6 months.
  • Keeping : Enjoy 3 to 5 years.
 
  • Tasting :
  • ► Visual : Gold color dress, shiny with tears that come from hanging on the glass wall.
  • ► Olfactory : The floral aromas of acacia and the more discreet one, of hawthorn, surround a palette of white fruits and dry, revealing a fresh slightly "anise" note (fennel).
  • ► Tasteful : The length supported by a present alcohol will reveal a harmonious complexity to us. Smoothness adds elegance to this Saint-Joseph Blanc. It will go perfectly with many dishes or to taste alone, only for the pleasure ...
  • ► Food and wine pairing :
  • - When it's the season, think of asparagus in different forms: steamed, au gratin, roasted, etc ...
  • - White meats: poultry, veal (cream)
  • - Sweetbread, quenelle, mushrooms.
  • - Fish will know how to accompany it too:
  • - Mediterranean red mullet.
  • - Monkfish or other fish.
  • - Cheeses such as: Saint-Félicien, Picodon "ripe", Chaource, Brillat, Brillat Savarin etc ... Or to surprise: Fried Cammenbert, without forgetting, Vol au Vent with different garnishes.
  • - A Tarte Tatin with salted butter caramel ice cream.
