Lionel Faury, Blanc, St-Joseph, Rhône 2019
(at United Kingdom, 17 Sep 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2024
I love the nose on this, it's complex with a fragrant sandalwood and cedar note that goes deep into the palate, lingering and showing honeyed tones. 2019 was a hot vintage, and this wine reflects that, despite being grown in the most northerly vineyards of St-Joseph. The acidity is on the low side, making for a very deep, rich and flavoursome style of northern Rhône white.
