Domaine Jolivet Saint Joseph L'Instinct 2018
"I adore balanced wines, a bit airborne in style, wines which also have structure, finesse. The use of whole bunches helps in that direction," says Bastien Jolivet, the third generation Rhone winemaker at the helm of Domaine Jolivet. In addition to growing up in the family business and apprenticing with Domaine du Monteillet, Bastien also gained winemaking experience working in New Zealand and South Africa before releasing his first vintage in 2014. Subsequent vintages have continued to demonstrate 'praiseworthy character.'
