Big, ripe and opulent nose. Peach, melon, bursting and super ripe but not over the top. But at the edge. Gorgeously balanced and high toned. Honey, custard. Lovely. Palate is ripe, concentrated and the acid is just barely ok. Right at my personal edge. But it’s still fresh from intense minerality. Citrus, peach and minerals on the palate. Superb concentration. The mineral freshness gets more and more intense with air. Makes up for the just ok acid. Lovely stuff. Super long finish. Almost a 9.3.

100% Roussanne, 100% awesome. The weight is ridiculous. Acid is a bit diminished - would like to see more from St Joseph, but a really lovely wine. I need to plant more Roussanne.

100 Roussanne. Great texture, pure Roussanne character, fresh, round, nice bitter balance. Pales in comparison to his St Epine blanc but great qpr
