Stephen Brook

Tasting: Saint Joseph 2010

Dumb nose. Rich, full-bodied, concentrated, with robust tannins but no excessive extraction. Vigorous and spicy, with a touch of pepper, and plenty of drive to carry the palate through to a long finish. An athletic wine, with muscle and energy. Good length.

Simon Field MW

Tasting: Saint Joseph 2010

Dense colour then a heady nose dominated by macerated prune, graphite and sloe. The palate unwraps the enigma somewhat, with peppery tannns and spicy fruit; a hedonistic and somewhat indulgent example but pleasing to every sense.

John Livingstone-Learmonth

Tasting: Saint Joseph 2010

Grilled, smoked red berry fruit with a note of the forest and autumn in it – a traditional start from a wide bouquet. The palate carries the wild woods, floral scent of the hills here, its berry fruit well-juiced at its centre. Strong local appeal. The fruit keeps a strong presence, and the gummy tannins help to build the finish. Can decant.
