Wine Expert Note:

In the glass, the Châtelet Saint-Joseph displays a deep ruby color, indicating its youth and vibrancy. On the nose, it offers an enticing bouquet of ripe blackberries, dark cherries, and hints of black pepper. On the palate, this Saint-Joseph reveals a medium body with a velvety texture. The flavors of black fruits continue to dominate, accompanied by well-integrated tannins that provide structure and balance. There is a pleasant acidity that adds freshness and contributes to a long, lingering finish. The Domaine Monier Perréol Châtelet Saint-Joseph is a wine that can be enjoyed now, but it also has the potential to age gracefully over 10 years. It pairs wonderfully with grilled meats, roasted game, or hearty stews. Read more

Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.

Les Pélerins de Lafon-Rochet is the second wine of Château Lafon-Rochet, a property that was awarded Fourth Growth status in the 1855 Classification of the Medoc, located in the Saint Estephe appellation of Bordeaux, France. The grapes come from younger vines on the estate and from vineyards located further inland, away from the river. The winemaking is focused on careful blending to achieve a style that while still worthy of cellaring is more approachable in youth with a less foreboding structure. The wine shows impressive complexity having been aged for a minimum of 12 months in French oak barrels, a moderate proportion of which were new. The provenance of the fruit and the technical winemaking result in highly enjoyable wine that is a reference point for the region and a charming glass of wine in its own right.
