Nicolas Jaboulet, Guillaume Sorrel and Alexandre Caso showcase treasures, very often forgotten vines or old vines on exceptional terroirs, to achieve the best expression of the appellation. In their minds, the estate must produce wines in the pure tradition of Crozes-Hermitage Saint-Joseph appellations. The work in the vineyard is done in the old-fashioned way, respecting the terroir. Soils are worked in a way to bring biodiversity back to life and give the best to the grapes. Some hundred-year-old vines on our Crozes Hermitage plots withstand time and are still capable of giving their best expression. Every year, Domaine Les Alexandrins focusses its expertise in viticulture and in the cellars to offer two great classic wines.

After the historically dry and hot summer, the wines give an impression of opulence, concentration and generosity. Ageing will allow the wines to soften and slowly find their balance. The sweet, fine and discreet aromas bring a touch of style and elegance to this magnificent Saint Joseph.

Tasting Notes

Nose of black fruit aromas, powerful, little reduction, fresh and elegant notes of berries, notes of hot Galets (pebbles) in the sun. A beautiful expression of the granitic terroir in this 2017 vintage. On the palate, nice balance of mineral freshness, complex progression with fine and tight tannins, beautifully long and steady finish.

Food Pairing

Pairs well with lamb, pork, poultry.
