Babylone Saint-Joseph Syrah 2016

Very dark in color, so surprising when the palate shows more red fruit than anything else. This has some savory character and some acidic structure, but tannins are a bit soft. The nose is cracked pepper and some darker fruit. This is a nice wine, but I’d say it drinks more like a balanced new world offering than a St Joseph. — 4 days ago

Straw yellow. Mellow fruity nose, sweet lemon. Full bodied mature palette, velvety, butter, still fresh and uplifting acidity. Excellent. — 10 days ago

Les Combaud St. Joseph Syrah 2018

Either mildly corked or brutally closed aromatically. :-(. So no rating. In the cat is alive universe decant for quite a while.

Nose. Occasionally some lilacs peek out from under the sheets.

Palate : Very elegant. Not super grippy. Crushed flowers. Super sweet raspberries. Black cherries. 9.3-9.5. A kiss of awesome elegant licorice.

Finish is a 9.5. So this would likely be very good. Stream of crushed flowers. Long.

ok. This is closed now. After an hour it opens and is great. Blind a more dense and dark fruited Cote rotie. Not rustic at all.

Fauterie rocks.

Bought from fass selections.

My favorite N Rhone producer.

Pierre Gonon

Saint-Joseph Syrah 2016

Love every vintage of Gonon- the best St. Joseph IMO. So expressive and giving seemingly at any age, as it was here with 2016. My second 2016 in the last few months. Signature inky purple. Deep and intense with great texture showing black fruits, liquid minerals, newly bloomed violets, black olive and hints of cacao. Wonderful concentration, energy and finesse. Stains the palate with a long and assertive finish. Excellent. — 17 days ago

Saint-Joseph Marsanne Roussanne Blend 2017

Pale lemon with aromas of stone fruits and floral spice. On the palate flavors of pear and apple with slight toasty oak and honey notes. Long finish ending with fruit and mineral character. Very nice drinking well. — 6 hours ago

Cavanos Saint Joseph Syrah 2016

Consumed directly after the 2015 Cornas “Le Village”. This was just a notch below that wine in my opinion. Right now, the structure is taking center stage and not allowing the fruit to deliver in the same way its cousin is giving. I also think the Cornas showed more complexity. Not that this isn’t endowed with fruit or complexity. A very lovely wine though. — 9 days ago

9.4

This is having a great moment. Smoke, olives, dark berry fruit, blueberry. Huge granite and deep mineral tones. Juicy, so fresh, deep and concentrated with outrageous purity and a long finish. Loads of medium to dark berry fruit and really really long finish and also serious structure. What a showing. This has got 15+ years ahead of it but is fun today. These wines will last a long time. — 14 days ago
