Une syrah qui se conserve une bonne dizaine d'années et qui ne perd pourtant rien de sa puissance, de son élégance et de sa douce matière. Il sublimera votre gigot d'agneau. More info

Sensonne is a single-variety Syrah wine cultivated in shallow, very granite-rich soils with a southerly exposure on steep slopes. The grapes are harvested manually, macerating and fermenting in open vats for 18 days. There are two daily punch-downs during these stages. The wine is then matured on lees, exclusively in new barrique barrels. Tasting reveals a very gentle yet powerful wine with real elegance. It features a very ripe, spicy fruitiness and a particularly dense substance that goes perfectly with a leg of lamb. Should be kept for at least ten years and opened one hour before serving.

Saint-Joseph La Sensonne Pierre et Jérôme Coursodon serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Sauté de boeuf en sauce à la truffe, Civet de marcassin, Pigeon au sang.

Peak: Drink until 2033
