In the glass, the Cru Sainte-Epine Saint-Joseph from Delas Frères offers a dense purple color. With a bit of lateral position, the Bordeaux glass reveals a charming garnet red tone at the edges. Given some air by swirling, this red wine reveals a high viscosity, evident in distinct church windows at the rim of the glass. To the nose, this Delas Frères red wine reveals all sorts of blueberries, mulberries, blackberries and black currants. As if that wasn't already impressive, gingerbread spice, oriental spices and vanilla join the mix due to the aging in small wooden barrels.
On the palate, the Cru Sainte-Epine Saint-Joseph from Delas Frères opens wonderfully aromatic, fruity and balanced. On the tongue, this punchy red wine is characterized by an immensely dense texture. In the finish, this well storable red wine from the wine-growing region Rhône Valley finally inspires with considerable length. There are again hints of blackberry and black currant. In the aftertaste, mineral notes of the soils dominated by slate and granite are added.
