2017 Rhône En Primeur
Domaine Marsanne, Saint-Joseph
Jean-Claude Marsanne lives and works in Mauves in the southern part of the Saint-Joseph appellation. He is a man of few words, a true vigneron. His vineyards are on slopes that are, in effect, a continuation of the hill of Hermitage, on the opposite bank of the Rhône. He is not a man to mess around with fancy cuvées, instead putting all his efforts into a single, brilliant, age-worthy Saint-Joseph. With most of the wine maturing in old oak demi-muids, the remainder in tank, Jean-Claude’s focus is on allowing the terroir and vintage character to shine. A firm favourite of ours, his bottles can be found in all the HH&C team’s cellars.
