      Tasting Notes
      The fruit for L'Olivaie is sourced from older vines planted in the 1940s giving the wine more depth and yet it still shows remarkable purity of the Syrah fruit grown on these great sites. The tannins are ripe and savoury and the wine has the potential to age very nicely.

      100% Syrah

      Very dark crimson colour with purple reflections. Concentrated nose, red fruit, spicy. In the mouth length and power with silky tannins completed by a very well balanced structure. This rich and velvety wine will reveal great aromas within a few years.

      "According to Jerôme Coursodon, the final blend of the 2017 Saint Joseph l'Olivaie will include approximately 20% new oak. Tasted blind from a second-fill demi-muid that was a representative blend, it looks fuller-bodied than the entry-level Silice, with a similar combination of red fruits (in this case, cherries and red-skinned plums) and black olives. It adds more concentration, a velvety mouthfeel and hints of espresso and crushed stone on the lengthy finish."
