Saint-Joseph from Domaine des Amphores


I am pleased that Michael Teer introduced me to the wines of Domaine des Amphores.  Founded by Veronique and Philippe Grenier in 1992, this estate has expanded over the years to produce a variety of wines from a variety of grapes.  Of the four wines from Saint-Joseph three are red including my bottle of 2013 Domaine des Amphores, Cuvee 2013, Saint-Joseph.  This is a finely made, grapey Saint-Joseph which should be cellared until next year.  This wine is available at Pike and Western Wine Shop.

2013 Domaine des Amphores, Cuvee 2013, Saint-Joseph – $27
Imported by Barrique Imports.  This wine is 100% Syrah fermented with indigenous yeasts in tank then aged for 12 months in neutral oak.  Alcohol 12.5%.  This is a grapey, tangy wine with a fine texture to the ripe berry flavor.  The wine is still a bit firm from youth with very fine tannins and watering acidity.  With air it takes on a white pepper note. *** 2017-2020.
