9.6

Another grand slam from Sylvain Bernard. Nose is ultra granite. Some black berry but man is this stoney. Smells like the Cornas but more Burgundian. Maybe the most expressive mineral nose I’ve ever had in a St. Joseph. 9.8 nose. This is doing it for me. It is so expansive. Intoxicating. The level of herbs are incredible. Just a knockout. Elegant and deep on the palate with terrific ripeness and intense concentration. But man is this painfully young. Awesome blancs, purity and length and so juicy with intense mineral grip. This needs to flesh out and the fruit needs to become more prominent. It will. My last French wine for a while! — 5 days ago

Saint-Joseph Syrah 2018

Outstanding expression of Hermitage. Full bodied Syrah but less of the hammer that I’m used to with many of the CA versions. — 18 hours ago

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave

Clos Florentin Saint-Joseph Syrah 2017

Off the charts good, textbook classic Syrah made in a clean and almost too perfect way. Where are the faults? Kidding aside this is about as good as anything I have had from St. Jo from Gonon or anyone else. All the classic notes of black pepper, roasted meats, bacon fat, olive, the hole package...the nose is very pronounced and the palate has freshness to the generosity, a super long finish and a very fun and enjoyable bottle! — 4 days ago

Impressive Tom. I rarely find Cornas and StJ syrahs that I truly enjoy. Have to get my hands on this!

9.5

As authentic as it gets. Older than old school. Nose is iodine, granite, blackberries, and it’s all wrapped in a bow. It is so refined. Wow. This is a stunning young bottle of this. Always a 9.5 as you can see by previous notes but this is just beyond. Meaty. I mean like sick insane vivid meats. Smoked and cured. 9.8 nose. Holy shit. That palate is elegant as all can be but has serious structure and tannins but all wrapped in granite and blackberry fruit. What a finish. This is as good a St. Joseph as I’ve had in months. Wow the concentration. So granitic and mineral. Young. But incredible. 9.5 for now. — 12 days ago

Cave Sébastien Blachon

Margariat Saint-Joseph Syrah 2019

Starts weighty and earthy, but becomes pretty with a few days. Earth, grape, brine, berry. Tannins are grippy and forbidding, actually quite bitter, but then this does have promising seductiveness and finesse. — 8 days ago
