Tasting: Saint Joseph 2010

Gamey nose, showing slight reduction. Rich, quite opulent, full-bodied and concentrated, this has depth and cut. The tannins are very ripe and balanced by lively acidity that gives energy to the wine overall. Complete and satisfying. Good length

Simon Field MW

Tasting: Saint Joseph 2010

A powerful nose suggesting a concentrated and richly fruity wine; the suggestion is not inappropriate and the palate is not without concentration, not to mention ripe loganberry and cherry fruit, with nicely poised acidity and ripe enveloping tannnis. Rather velvety in a region where one expect the silk route to pass, but quite seductive nonetheless. Boucher rather than Watteau.

John Livingstone-Learmonth

Tasting: Saint Joseph 2010

Raspberry fruit air that has life in it, a note of mint, good clear virtues. A mild, agreeable floral note accompanies it. The palate bears restrained, scented red fruit, the notes of rose and iris prominent. Bonny drinking now, ending on raspberry jam flavour. Ready to go. A down to business wine. Just a small note of darkness, a spot of tar-tannin on the aftertaste.
