St. Joseph, Northern Rhône

Yves Cuilleron

Les Vignes d'à Côté Marsanne 2016

Waxy, floral, slightly honeyed but showing wide range. Bright golden color, aromatics of yellow peach, banana, mango and even a bit of citrus. Honeysuckle and wild herbs get in on the game as well. Full bodied on entry but finishing lean and sinewy with great supporting backbone of minerality and very clean acidity. Anything of this quality from a top tier producer is a steal at under $20. Marsanne doubters really need to try this wine. — 4 days ago

Very nice though way too young. Thinner than some other vintages — 2 days ago

Domaine Bernard Gripa

St. Joseph Syrah 2015


Plums & pomеgranate, cherry stone, burried flowers & youngster undebrush. Dense and layered, a bit oaky on day one but no hint of it on day three. Plush, voluminous body, med+ weight, ripe - 2015 - but remains fresh, nicely extracted. Succulent. — 17 days ago

Les Cessieux Saint-Joseph Syrah

Always a favorite. Fun to surprise the traditionalists at the table with Souhaut’s lighter style and thankful that despite it’s youth, it’s quite drinkable now! — 15 days ago

Vieilles Vignes St. Joseph Marsanne Roussanne Blend 2015

Don’t drink this now. Day one was hot and bludgeony. Left it in the fridge. Day three is great. Nice nose. Petroleum and nice spice on the palate. Delicious fruit. Wait until 2020. — 20 days ago

I like the way they pay attention to grape extraction and harvesting. This was sole reason why I bought it — 23 days ago
