Margariat Saint-Joseph Syrah 2018

9.6

Nose is all game, meat and feral St. Joseph aromas. So different than the stoney regular cuvee. Beautiful and classy. A step up. Florals and high toned and unreal, precise and expansive blackberry fruit. Gorgeous menthol and spice on the nose. Just intense and dizzying aromas. 9.5 aromas. Wow. What a palate. Insanely juicy and so deep with just terrific cut. This is a briliant new find. There is real substance and cut here. Awesome palate. Shows exceptional class and refinement. Terrific freshness and sweetness allied with insane granitic cut. Just so so long. This is a revelation. So so delicious. Big structure. This is a 20 year wine. Reminds me a bit of Fauterie st. Joseph Le combaud. Wow. As this airs out it gets more stoney and just so much more precise. So great. Unreal fruit and depth. Magical stuff. Keeps getting more elegant and defined.

Big time update. Amazing length, texture and grip. Takes over your mouth. Unreal fruit and purity. Just a masterpiece. Takes on so much more on day 2. 9.5 to 9.6.

I enjoyed this. Very #syrah Deep color, black fruit, hints of smoke and meat. Well balanced with relatively high (med+) acidity balanced with ripe fruit. #saintjoseph — 3 months ago

Cuvée Isaline Saint Joseph blanc Marsanne Roussanne 2018

Lyle Fass
9.4

Rich, waxey nose, with terrific granitic freshness. Really great minerals juxtapose with the richness. That’s what great St jo Blanc is all about. Some just ripened tropical fruits. Floral with air. White flowers. Palate is like icing on a cake. Ripe, so so mineral and textured mineralic freshness. Barely any fruit on the palate but a sense of engaging mineral sweetness. This is great. As it airs nose gets more complex. Palate is superbly elegant and so racy. This is a revelatory St. Joseph Blanc. Chewy and dense and almost tannic. Amazing energy and linearity on this. This is the white Rhone wine to give people who don’t like them. It has it all. Brilliant. — 6 months ago

Alban Saint-Joseph Syrah 2016

About as elegant a style of Syrah as you can get. Complex nose has crumbly granite, Szechuan peppercorn, fire-charred beef, boysenberry fruit. Soft and mouthfilling flavors, with a beautiful balance between mineral, savory, and dark but not sweet fruit. Very soft texture and perfectly pitched acids. Terrific. — 5 months ago
