Saint-Joseph is a step further than Crozes-Hermitage in terms of body and concentration. "Le Grand Pompée" boasts complex aromas of ripe red fruit, spices and liquorice. Oak barrels give it a firm structure, supple tannins and a toasted, long finish. A superb example of the appellation, now entering its drinking window. Very possibly our favourite wine of the week!
