The Saint-Joseph ‘Babylone’ comes from old-vine parcels near the historic center of the appellation, including century-old vines from the ‘Côte des Rivoirs’ parcel in Tournon. Additional vineyard sources in Vion and Ozon round out the blend; all parcels are between 125 and 250m elevation. Soils are granite de Tournon (decomposed granite with sand and gneiss), which lends this Syrah a clear sense of acidity and lift. 75% destemmed / 25% whole-cluster; fermentation in stainless steel; 17 months’ élevage in 1 to 6-year-old barrels. 

Deep Ruby. Mineral-tinged aromas of ripe cherry, dark berries, smoked meat, allspice and violet. Sappy and energetic in the mouth, offering appealingly sweet black raspberry, kirsch, floral pastille, olive paste and baking spice flavors with a zesty touch of cracked pepper.
