Gripa Saint-Joseph Berceau Red 2021

The Saint-Joseph Berceau is a profound expression of Syrah from Domaine Gripa. The "Berceau," meaning cradle in French, is a cuvée reserved for the best of their collection, meticulously selected from the oldest vines across a singular hectare within the appellation. Grown exclusively on terraced vineyards, these vines demand hand cultivation due to the challenging terrain, accentuating the dedication to quality and tradition.

The granite-rich soils of Saint Joseph imbue the wine with a refreshing crispness, balancing the typically low acidity with a vibrant freshness. On the nose, this full-bodied wine presents a compelling bouquet of black pepper, ripe blackberries, and delicate violet notes. The palate is robust and dense, characterized by silky yet firm tannins that promise excellent aging potential.

Ideal for pairing with rich dishes such as lamb, beef, and spicy cuisine, the Berceau also complements a variety of strong cheeses. While it is built to age gracefully for over 15 years, those eager to enjoy its complexity sooner can do so by decanting the wine at least an hour before serving, unlocking its full array of flavors and aromas. Whether you're a collector or a novice, the Saint Joseph Berceau red is a standout choice that epitomizes the craftsmanship and unique terroir of Domaine Gripa.
