Gripa Saint-Joseph Berceau White 2021

The Saint Joseph Berceau Blanc, crafted by Domaine Bernard Gripa, is a remarkable Marsanne wine that showcases elegance and power. This premier cuvée, named "Berceau," which translates to "cradle," is derived from the oldest vines within a single hectare in the Saint Joseph appellation. These vines are meticulously cultivated by hand on terraced landscapes, a testament to the labor-intensive methods required due to the challenging terrain.

The terroir is characterized by its granite soils, which endow the wine with a distinctive freshness, counterbalancing its naturally low acidity. On the nose, the Berceau Marsanne exudes a complex array of aromas, featuring citrus and beeswax. The palate follows with a robust and elegant profile, highlighted by flavors of hazelnut and a distinct saltiness, leading to a prolonged finish.

This wine pairs exquisitely with delicate dishes such as crayfish, veal, chicken, or white fish. It also possesses significant aging potential, with the capacity to develop further complexity over more than 15 years. Alternatively, it can be enjoyed in its youth if decanted at least an hour before serving, allowing the intricate flavors and aromas to fully emerge. Whether aged or served young, the Saint Joseph Berceau represents a sophisticated choice for discerning wine enthusiasts, embodying the rich winemaking heritage of Domaine Bernard Gripa.
