St Joseph 2010: panel tasting results
Pierre Gaillard, Les Pierres
Decanter average score: 17.25pts/20 (90+/100pts)
Individual judge’s scores: Stephen Brook 17.5 Simon Field MW 16 John Livingstone-Learmonth 18
Toasty, smoky nose, plummy and quite meaty. The palate is solid with good tannic grip and earthiness. Broad and sustained across the back palate, delivering an ample mouthful of plump fruit with touches of sage, laurel and beef stock on the finish.
