Domaine Bernard Gripa Saint Joseph Blanc 2019
|REGION||Rhone Valley, France|
Bernard Gripa estate is located in the heart of the Saint-Joseph appellation in the town of Mauves. His son Fabrice Gripa took charge of the estate in 2001 and runs it with respect for the land and the environment. The estate covers 16 hectares in the appellations of Saint-Joseph and Saint-Péray with an amount of production equal to white and red. The granite and limestone soils give wines with a unique minerality. The estate's wines perfectly reflect the terroir and seduce with their purity and precision with great ageing potential.
Vivid straw-yellow. Deep, mineral-accented aromas of pear and peach nectar, honey and pungent flowers. Broad and fleshy but surprisingly animated on the palate, offering succulent orchard and pit fruit flavors and a touch of bitter quinine. Shows a strong mineral quality on the long, spicy finish, which leaves a suggestion of fennel behind.
