St. Joseph Syrah 2016

Delectable Wine
9.2

Brilliant violet. A highly aromatic bouquet evokes candied black and blue fruits, along with suggestions of smoky minerals, candied flowers, olive and cured meat. Deep, chewy and expansive in the mouth, offering concentrated dark berry liqueur, spicecake and salty olive flavors complicated by a hint of game and a building floral pastille note. Powerful but graceful, showing excellent clarity and mineral-driven thrust on the spicy, penetrating finish. All whole clusters. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, September 2019) — 15 days ago

Hermitage Syrah 2016

Ежевика, черника, эстрагон, фиалки, подлесок, перец горошком, тонкий животный тон, минеральная подложка. Среднее тело с живой кислотностью и мягкими, покорными танинами. Сочно и легко, мутновато, немного мудянисто, но с глубиной и спрятанной под натуральным фанком типичностью. — 7 months ago

Les Champs St. Joseph Syrah 2011

Pourpre fonce
Nez pointé animale poivre goudron
Bouche acide et ample après impression d acidité volatile fiable un peu amère et chaude
Aromatique pas très mûre
Vin acheté à sa sortie et conserve à 12 degres
Pour moi manque de netteté mais très belle matière première
Après 20 h d aération nettement mieux le côté animal disparaît mais un côté volatil ne lui permettent pas d accéder à une note superieure
Matière première splendide
