Weight: 7R

Varietal: Syrah

Region: Saint-Joseph, Rhone Valley, France

94-96 points, The Wine Advocate

"To date, this is the only single-parcel wine Chave has released from Saint Joseph. The 2018 Saint Joseph Le Clos Florentin boasts wonderfully pure blueberries on the nose, with just the slightest hints of herbs and Asian five-spice powder. Full-bodied, it's deep and rich, supple on the mid-palate, then silky and fine on the finish. In less than a generation, Jean-Louis Chave has created one of Saint Joseph's top wines." - Joe Czerwinski
