Clos Martinets St. Joseph Syrah 2016

Lyle Fass

Love this St. Joseph. Such a different more “Côte-Rotie” style than the classic Mauves, Tournon, Epine styles. Super floral. Violets and more violets. Gorgeous precise and high toned aromas of mineral and lavender as well. Gorgeous red fruits and a lovely smokey, meaty and gamey element. Palate is structured and refined, and a bit tight out of the bottle but does blossom after an hour, but ideally I’d sit on this. Precise and linear, gamey, with huge granitic minerality and wonderfully pure. Give this 3-5 more years. But gorgeous wine if a bit young. — a year ago

"Sainte Epine" St. Joseph Syrah 2017

Delectable Wine

Glass-staining ruby. Smoke- and spice-tinged dark berry, cherry and violet scents pick up a hint of licorice with air. In a fleshy, generous style, showing very good depth and appealing sweetness to the cherry preserve and cassis flavors, which take on a spicy aspect on the back half. Smooth, even tannins frame a long, smoky finish that leaves a hint of bitter chocolate behind. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, April 2020)

Domaine des Pierres Sèches Sylvain Gauthier

Sainte-Épine Saint-Joseph White Rhone Blend 2017

This is so delicious. Serious, muscular with loads of elegance and length for its youth. So textural and rich without any heaviness, beautifully balanced acidity and oak treatment. Ripe apricot, peach, green pineapple, vanilla, cinnamon, cream, anise, river stones, green almond, yellow flowers, honey. Very expressive nose and palate. Can sense the elevation of St Epine in its freshness and concentration. I could see this going the long haul no problem. — a year ago

Gorgeous and deep nose. Cassis, some wood, sappy red berries, smoke, mineral, granite. Needs an hour I’d say. Will track.

Palate is so so 16. Clean, fresh, refined and ripe. Loads of red berry fruit, so juicy, concentrated and pure. Lovely dusty tannins. Very elegant. Long and terrific freshness. Still young and this note is only from 10 minutes open but beautiful wine. Terrific structure as is airs out.

Château la Tour de l'Évêque

Chevalier De Lafoux Sainte Anne Côtes De Provence Rosé Blend 2017

Not sure what Delectable is doing, but the name of this wine is “Chevalier de Lafoux Sainte Anne.” Pale salmon color, typical of the genre. Shy nose of pear and ripe melon. Echoed on the medium light palate as Bosc and cantaloupe. Medium acidity as expected in the classic (current) Provençal style, and a surprisingly long finish. Winemaker Régine Sumiere’s classic Côte is a great sipper, but will also hold its own with a variety of “zingy” foods. I’m enjoying with grilled salmon. Salade Niçoise is a natural pair. — 2 years ago
