Vinification of the Saint Joseph Les Capelets by Pierre Amadieu
This wine clearly focuses on one grape variety, Syrah. Only the best grapes were harvested for this wonderfully elegant single varietal wine from Pierre Amadieu. The grapes grow under optimal conditions in the Rhône Valley. The vines here dig their roots deep into soils of shale. Saint Joseph Les Capelets is an Old World wine in the best sense of the word, as this Frenchman breathes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underscores the success of Old World wines. After the grape harvest, the grapes arrive swiftly at the winery. Here they are selected and carefully crushed. Fermentation then takes place in stainless steel tanks and small wood at controlled temperatures. Fermentation is followed by aging for several months on the fine lees before the wine is finally drawn into bottles.
