Wine Region: Rhone - France
Grape: 100% Syrah.
Tasting notes: "The Marsanne-based 2019 Saint Joseph Blanc Noble Rives aged mostly in used 400-liter barrels. It's medium to full-bodied, showing the power of the vintage in its weight and volume. Yet it retains some nuance, blending subtle pear and lemon notes with ripe citrus before fading harmoniously on the finish. Drink it young."Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate
Expert Rating: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 90/100.

The leading producer of "vintage" wines in the northern Rhone Valley On the left bank of the Rhone River , the Hermitage hillside towers above the Crozes Hermitage appellation. On the right bank , from north to south, the vineyards of Saint Joseph, Cornas and Saint Péray cling to steep terraces. It is here, on granite and alluvial soils , resulting from a complex geological evolution offering amazing diversity , and at their most northern cultural limitation, that our grape varieties are at their best - Syrah for red wines, Marsanne for white wines. The Cave of Tain owns estates in the appellations Crozes Hermitage, Cornas, Saint Péray and notably 21 hectares in the prestigious Hermitage appellation
