Bernard Gripa Le Berceau St Joseph Rouge - Saint-Joseph, Rhone Valley

Vintage: 2013 Region: France
Type: Reds
Winery: Domaine Bernard Gripa
Tasting Notes:

100% Syrah.
The powerful nose is showing black pepper, blackberries and subtle violet flavours. The taste is full-bodied and dense, with silky and firm tannins. It could be paired with lamb, beef and spicy dishes as well as a great array of strong cheeses. It could be cellared for more than 15 years or enjoyed in its youth by decanting for at least an hour before serving.

Domaine Gripa has named their top Saint Joseph cuvée “Berceau”. It is a selection of their oldest vines from the appellation. There is only one hectare of vines that produce this label. Exclusively planted on terraces, these challenging vineyards can only be maintained by hand. The granite soils of Saint Joseph provide great freshness to the wines, despite their low acidity.

Recommended Retail $150.00 per Bottle.

Perefct with Pork and Lima Beans - Cook the beans and pork together for 6 hours to show their full flavour and fall-apart tender, providing a wonderful backdrop to the powerful and complex wine.

Domaine Bernard Gripa has been around since 1930 first as growers and then as a Domaine with their first commercial release in 1974. Bernard’s son Fabrice took the reigns in 1993 after spreading his wings in Australia working with the likes of Steve Pannell. Production is split 50/50 white to red with St Peray Blanc a personal mission. There is a casualness to the wines reflective of their maker but a connection to the steep slopes of the appellation comes through with a careful and considered hand resulting in perfectly balanced, superb representations of what Northern Rhône should look like.
