Producer:

Stephen Brook

Tasting: Saint Joseph 2010

Lush, oaky plummy nose, with just a trace of reduction. Rich, sumptuous, creamy and very ripe, a full-bodied style with both weight and freshness. This is zesty and harmonious. The tannins are very ripe and this should age well. Good length.

Simon Field MW

Tasting: Saint Joseph 2010

Forest floor and hints of clove and dark chocolate dominate the nose here. The palate is leaner than expected, perhaps still a little reticent and four-square; with time the fruit will sing a little more and the fine latent structure will come into its own

John Livingstone-Learmonth

Tasting: Saint Joseph 2010

Cooked, spiced red berry fruit airs, mainly raspberry and mulberry. Has depth and shows a smoked bacon note as well. The palate is southern in style, bears garrigue herbs in its red stone fruit flavour, the tannins are live, well-grained. Ends with kick, good fruit verve and carry. Uncomplicated, does what St. Joseph should do – entertains. Good and drinkable, with the cut of the granite running through it.
