Julien Cécillon Saint-Joseph Babylone 2016
Julien Cécillon is producing incredible terroir driven wine in the Northern Rhone.
Intense red with garnet and purple hues. Well- integrated aromas of cherry, violet, pepper, thyme, and cocoa. Soft tannins and nice complexity with a long finish. Sustainable farming employed; domaine is close to AB Organic Certification.
As a long time fan of Northern Rhône wines, I feel that St Joseph provides the best value in Northern Rhône reds. This effort by Julien Cécillon is maybe the best I've had for this price clearly outstripping better known names at double the price
Only 125 cases are produced and only 8 were available in South Carolina.
