Vidal Fleury, Saint Joseph, Rhône, 2010

Producer:

Stephen Brook

Tasting: Saint Joseph 2010

Very stylish if oaky nose, ripe plums. Ripe, almost sweet, silky in texture, yet still showing attractive acidity. Not hugely concentrated but vibrant and charming, with ample finesse rather than depth or structure. Good length, some mocha on the finish.

Tasting: Saint Joseph 2010

A classic nose of redcurrant, pepper and clove, with hints of aniseed and laurel. Palate is equally diverse and interesting. I love the stony minerality which underpins the black fruit core and the definition on the finish. Linear and persuasive, this has an agreeable sense of terroir.

Tasting: Saint Joseph 2010

Pine needle, bacon, stewed raspberry air that is not that clear. The palate serves up red berry fruit with a limp side, lacks the uplift of the best this year. The finish is based on black jam, with a dry note on it for now. All a bit locked up, leave until 2014. Has some local character, is more country than city in style.
