Saint-Joseph Anges 2013 de Louis Chèze: un a red wine with harmonious tannins
A single-varietal Syrah red wine produced in the Saint-Joseph appellation, the Saint-Joseph Anges of Louis Chèze comes from vines aged 50 years on average and planted on dark migmatite granitic soils. The wine is aged exclusively in new oak barrels for an average of 22 months.
At tasting, the Saint Joseph Joseph Angels 2013 by Louis Chèze displays a red ruby colour, clear and deep. Pretty complex, the nose develops aromas of black fruits mixed with notes of soft, subtly woody spices. The attack in mouth is frank and straight, and the St. Joseph's Angels 2013 reveals extremely harmonious tannins, before a persistent finish and fantastic length.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Possessing a more modern style in its graphite, sweet oak, licorice and cassis scented bouquet, the 2013 Saint Joseph Anges (100% Syrah aged ten months in oak) is medium-bodied, nicely textured and concentrated with light tannin coming through on the finish. It's solid and has some upside. Give it a year or so to integrate some oak and enjoy bottles through 2024.
