Tasting: Saint Joseph 2010

Oaky and discreetly herbaceous nose, understated but quite stylish with a light red-fruits character. Medium-bodied, sleek, quite concentrated, and has light tannins and acidity. This has some intensity and lift though it’s far from profound. It’s shapely and graceful rather than powerful. Balanced and long.

Simon Field MW

Tasting: Saint Joseph 2010

Youthful aromas, divided between the red and black end of the fruit spectrum, with a pinch of pepper to taste, then a palate which is also rather precocious, but not lacking potential such is its inherent balance and finely-wrought tannic structure.

John Livingstone-Learmonth

Tasting: Saint Joseph 2010

Bright blackberry and mulberry fruit air, some bacon and rubber – plenty of depth and vigour on the nose. The berry fruit is tasty, spreads liberally around the palate, its juiciness the hallmark of the 2010 vintage. There is a slight pinching towards the finish as the acidity of the fresh nights kicks in, a spot of unfinished business. Interesting wine, with floral undertones in the raspberry fruit on the aftertaste. Tannins need a year or so.
