Stephane Otheguy Saint-Joseph Le Temps Des Cerises
Region: Northern Rhone
Stephane Otheguy makes sensational wine from 1.5 hectares of vines planted in the steep and rocky northern Rhone appelations of Cote Rotie, Saint-Joseph and Condrieu. He ferments his wine in open top vats with indidgenous yeasts without temperatutre control and bottles without any fining or filtration.
Le Temps Des Cerises is Saint-Joseph Syrah from a parcel planted in 2005. Violets and a touch of smoky tobacco on the nose. Soft and sweet-fruited on the palate with a crack of black pepper and enticing viscosity.
