St Joseph 2010: panel tasting results
Louis Chèze, Caroline, Cuvée Prestige
Decanter average score: 17.25pts/20 (90+/100pts)
Individual judge’s scores: Stephen Brook 17 Simon Field MW 17 John Livingstone-Learmonth 17.5
Spicy, seductive nose of juicy blackberry and an undertone of violet. Delicious and stylish with purity and finesse, the focus is on restraint, with a floral current through it and lots of energy. Needs a year to fine tune its elements, but has plenty of personality.
