Saint Joseph Blanc 2019 - Domaine Melody
Domaine Melody's Saint Joseph Blanc is made from hand-harvested Marsanne grapes (90%) and another 10% Rousanne grapes. They grow on a hillside in a vineyard just west of Saint Désirat. The soil contains a lot of granite. The wine matures for one year in old oak barrels for 50% and in stainless steel for the other 50%. This Saint Joseph Blanc has a light golden yellow colour and has a nose with soft white fruit and the floral touch of jasmine. On the palate, it is firm and full of pretty peachy fruit, some buttery puffiness and a touch of honey with minerality. Serve at 11-12 degrees with scallops or crab, with cod with a creamy sauce, with nice pieces of brie or a couscous salad.
