Tasting: Saint Joseph 2010

Fresh minty nose, cherries and blueberries. Fresh and zesty attack, silky and stylish, with a charming lift on the palate. There’s no lack of concentration, but it’s acidity rather than extraction that drives the wine. There’s not a great deal of structure here, but it’s finely tuned and well balanced, with a long, piquant finish.

Tasting: Saint Joseph 2010

An aromatic nose is dominated by notes of ripe plumb, creme cassis and black tea. The palate is sweet and generous of construction, maybe a touch over-extracted but with fine balancing natural acidity and an assertive finish.

John Livingstone-Learmonth

Tasting: Saint Joseph 2010

Oxtail depth, blackberry fruit topping to the bouquet, which has a plump core. The palate has a meat stock note in its red fruit, a grounded style, the red berries redolent of the southern area of St. Joseph. Tasty and nicely full along the palate, a genuine wine of its place. Good link between nose and palate with life and mineral grain on the aftertaste. Good length. Another year will amplify its finish.
