St. Joseph, Northern Rhône

Etienne Bécheras

Cuvée Tour Joviac La Prieuré d'Arras St. Joseph Syrah 2014

This is a 100 % organic Syrah grown on decomposed granite hillsides in Saint Joseph, displaying violet, ripe black fruits with hint of dried blueberry, black pepper and vanilla. Slightly musky, dusty, med plus body with great acidity and med plus tannin. A wonderful Saint Joseph has depth, structure, and fruitiness. — 21 days ago

Been a minute since I’ve had the 2014. Nose is yellow fruited with intense Marsanne minerality. Some flowers and spice as well. Palate is super precise and elegant with lovely density and wonderful purity. Intense minerality and terrific mouthfeel. Almost like icing on a cake. — 9 days ago

Domaine du Tunnel (Stéphane Robert)

St. Joseph Syrah 2016

A nice wine but not sure the quality to price ratio is quite there. Plenty of dark fruit and earth, but not as high toned as I like from St Joseph. Slightly thin, on the finish, even. Still nice but for the price was expecting more. Possible this is just too young and was tight and not giving much. — 13 days ago

Couronne de Chabot Saint-Joseph Marsanne 2017

Alluring yellow fruit and citrus aromas with some minerality that opens to well-balanced and juicy flavors on the tongue. A bit of a bite on the finish. Best served chilled. — 9 days ago

Clos de Cuminaille Saint-Joseph Syrah 2017

Last night of vacation in Spain and France. 13th bottle and I only have a 12-bottle shipper, so pulled the cork. Nice , relatively soft Syrah and pretty well ready to go on pop and pour. Purchased at the winery. — 12 days ago
