Tasting: Saint Joseph 2010

Rich juicy blackberry nose, quite oaky. Very ripe, svelte, concentrated, with ripe sleek tannins and fine acidity. This has purity and finesse, and a lifted finish. Delicious and stylish, if not especially complex. Quite good length

Tasting: Saint Joseph 2010

Deep of colour, with a spicy and seductive nose. The wine has energy, balanced acidity, red and black fruit personality and real purity on the finish.

John Livingstone-Learmonth

Tasting: Saint Joseph 2010

There are precise airs to the blackberry fruit, and a soft undertone of violet – this has an interesting nose. The style is on finesse, restraint – there is a floral current through it, soft-tread tannins, and a curved sign-off, expressing roundness and accessibility. Needs a year or so to fine tune its elements. Subtle and well made, with the length oak-marked for now. Enough matter for the oak.
