Ogier St. Joseph Rouge Baligant

St. Joseph, Rhône

The Baligant vineyard is located in the Northern Rhône Valley on the right bank of the Rhône, between Condrieu in the north and Cornas in the south.

Tasting Notes

Beautiful intense garnet color.
The first discreet one highlights mainly spicy and mineral notes of classic flint on these acidic soils but in 2018 a powerful black fruit appears, ripe cherry rubs shoulders with notes of plums.  After aeration, a nice bouquet of ripe fruit and liquorice develops.  Delicate and very discreet ageing notes bring complexity and delicacy.
The palate is fruity and delicate with a soft acidity present throughout the tasting - complexity, balance and persistence on the palate make this wine a beautiful St. Joseph to be enjoyed in its youth after decanting for 2-3 hours or after a few years of bottle ageing.

To be enjoyed in these first years with red meats, rack of lamb, but it will age and serve advantageously more refined dishes such as roast game and steak of doe.

VINIFICATION:
Hand harvested.  Total destemming - natural pre-fermentation with minimal sulphiting.  Progressive temperature increase during alcoholic fermentation to finish between 28 and 30˚C.  Delicate extraction by mainly fractional pumping over and hot post-fermentation vatting (28-30˚C).
AGEING:
60% matured in concrete vats, 20% in tuns and 20% in barrels and demi-muids less than 2 years old.

GRAPE VARIETIES:
Syrah

SOIL:
Granitic terraces and schist.

Tasting Notes

Appearance:
Ruby-red in color.
Nose:
An intense nose of black fruit (blackcurrant, blueberry) and Morello cherry over a sooty, wax-polish base that lends a strong mineral character.  Some leather notes mixed with grilled dried fruits.
 
Palate:
The palate is bright with a gentle acidity throughout, complexity and balance with an outstanding aftertaste making this wine a great St. Joseph.

VINIFICATION:
Hand harvested.  Total destemming - natural pre-fermentation maceration with variable temperature and time depending on the vintage. Daily pumping over and cap-punching if required during a long maceration of 20 to 40 days.  Temperature control between 24 and 30˚C.

GRAPE VARIETIES:
Syrah

SOIL:
Granitic terraces and schist.
