Was given this blind. Had olive notes so Syrah came to mind but it had a lot of Bordeaux character to it as well. I actually thought it may be some Mas des Daumas Gassac but this was so clean. Lovely wine.

No doubt one of the best Saint-Joseph’s you’ll taste. Beautiful.

Excellent with slow braised leg of lamb and white beans. Drinking perfectly after a 45 minute decant.

Rich ripe and velvety. Blind guessed this wrong three times. Missing a bit if not all of varietal character for me.

Closed down on the first pour but gave this about an hour and it came alive. Expressive nose and palate. Not the most complex but very tasty, especially for this price.

Polished and juicy with nice fruit and a good amount of oak .A well made wine that lacks a little of the rustic /vineyard character that I like from the wines of this commune . A nice bottle though that would appeal to new world wine lovers .
