Originating from vineyards neighboring those of Gonon, the 2021 red Saint-Joseph La Dardouille presents a subtle and bright interpretation of the Syrah grape. This wine is exceptionally pure, expressing delightful smoky and bacon-like notes. Its texture is juicy, elegant, and well-balanced, supported by a noble and understated use of oak. A truly magnificent bottle! Rated 94/100 by the Committee.
