Wine: J.L. Chave Sélection SaintJoseph Rouge “Offerus”
Appellation: Saint-Joseph AOC
Vineyard Age: 5-80 years
Vineyard Location: The vineyards used for Offerus are located in two distinct St. Joseph areas. The communities of Mauves, Tournon, and
St. Jean de Muzols yield over 80% of the blend and are owned by JeanLouis. These southern vineyard sites express tightly wound tannins, spice, and power. They add structure and depth to complete the harmony of Offerus. The remaining vineyards are located in more northerly communities around Serrières, and even these are farmed mainly by Jean-Louis, though he doesn’t own the vineyards.
This soil produces wines which are more elegant with incredible purity, definition, and focus.
Vinification: About 50% destemmed. Fermentation in wood tonneaux and stainless steel tanks. Aged in barriques and foudres for 18
