St. Joseph Cuvee 1930 Syrah 2020

9.8

After 6 hours this got there. Floral, ripe, blackberry, leather, blueberry and smoke. Also violets and smoke. Big leather as well. Juicy and complex, fresh and deep. Big oak tannins. This needs 8-10 years. From the oldest vines of the estate. Really showing young. — a month ago

Sainte-Épine Saint-Joseph Syrah 2016

Lyle Fass
9.5

Young and awesome. Dark nose. Cocoa, chocolate, granite, floral and mineral. Opens up slowly with spice and even more defined flowers. Palate is rich and ripe, with excellent freshness and intense granitic minerality. Hit of opulence as well. Such dramatic and palate staining blackberry and blueberry fruit that is so well defined. Grippy and substantial tannins. Elegant and refined. But still showing young even with all that. Needs air and age. Stunning. But I’ll be back. This can be a 9.5 but a 9.3 for now. Open 10 minutes for this note.

9.5 now. Wow. Refined and elegant with just stunning fruit. Such an epic wine.

@William Hughes yes. The Epine Blanc now known as Aubert. It’s amazing.

Pur Ju St. Joseph Gamay

Get an intense, syrupy cherry, and that stony minerality. Intense, not a light gamay. Tom- your description is accurate. Thanks for the bottle! — 2 years ago

Only ask is for a bit more acid. But great texture, weight, lovely. — 7 months ago

Sylvain Gauthier Cuvée Aubert St. Joseph Syrah 2017

Painfully young, but that old vine syrah and granite density make it hard to resist. Dark, angry, pure granitic bite on the back half, needs some time, but the ripeness and warming fruit is coaxed out with air. I see a lot of potential here. — a year ago
