Clos Saint Joseph

Domaine Bernard Gripa

Saint-Joseph Syrah 2015

Nose is graphite.

Palate - silky texture. Graphite blended with blackberry.

Let’s see how this develops.

As this opens it’s definitely a graphite blackberry melange kind of thing. Good grip. Quite focused. Cerebral in a sense. Like this silky almost lilac extract on the palate.

If I had this blind I’d guess st jo on the nose and cote rotie on the palate.

2021/3. Red and blue fruit, but also powdery and compacted - even a relatively “straightforward” St. Joseph like this probably needs more time to come together — 2 days ago

In a great place. This shows the glory of 2015. Smokey meats, olive and granite on the nose. Palate is complex right now and so pure, energetic and fresh. Terrific integration of fruit, tannins, granite, acid. Just so long as well. Black fruits bursting in your mouth slathered in granite. Wow this is long. Really long. Yup. A 9.4. — 21 days ago

Sainte-Épine Saint-Joseph Syrah 2018

Young, but great upside potential. Old vine Marsanne from the lieu-dit Aubert, east of the Sainte Epine vineyard. One of the original St Joseph appellation parcels, tended by Trollat for decades according to the spec sheet. Delightful. — 16 days ago

My bottle was tight as well. But this was NUTS out of barrel. I have faith it will blossom.
