Tasting: Saint Joseph 2010

Opulent plum and blackberry nose, with a light meatiness. Fairly rich, but limpid and marked by quite high acidity. A touch raw now but seems to have sufficient fruit for it to re-emerge with more bottle age. Fresh and quite assertive, without great depth of fruit, but persistent.

Simon Field MW

Tasting: Saint Joseph 2010

An attractive and aromatic nose which here is both fruity and floral, with violets and bacon rind reminding one of a Cote Rotie! The palate is wreathed in expensive oak, but has considerable weight and concentration, fine acidity and a pleasing peppery denouement. Long and powerful, a worthy ambassador from the modern school

John Livingstone-Learmonth

Tasting: Saint Joseph 2010

The nose is ripe, grounded, broad, and of the earth – blackberry with a meat stock side to it, a visceral side. The palate has a local fragrance, a violet note, in its full, meaty fruit. Very much a wine that expresses local colour and requires robust foods such as game with it. Near a Cornas depth, without the minerality of Cornas. Decant. Lots of character.
