Product Description

"Fresh in feel, with light bay leaf, pepper and dried violet notes leading a core of gently steeped plum and bitter cherry fruit. The long finish is inlaid with a smoldering alder detail. Very refined, with ample reserve for cellaring." Wine Spectator 94 Points

“Tasted in components: #1, from Bachasson: Highly perfumed aromas and flavors of fresh dark berries and cherry, bearing an intense floral overtone. Juicy and precise with excellent clarity and finishing lift. #2, from 90-year-old vines in Clos Florentin: Potent dark berry and pungent flowers on the mineral-accented nose. Deeply concentrated yet lithe, offering vibrant blackberry and violet pastille flavors that open up slowly on the back half. Rich but nervy, displaying outstanding closing thrust and lingering sweetness. The final wine should be a weighty yet energetic Saint-Joseph with intense dark berry and floral character supported by a spine of juicy acidity and minerality.” Vinous 92-94 Points

“This is still tightly coiled, with a bright iron minerality and mouthwatering bay leaf and pepper notes holding the core of damson plum and bitter cherry fruit flavors back for now. The long, sleek finish has the cut and energy to allow this to eventually unwind.” Wine Spectator 93 Points

“The 2014 St Joseph Domaine is a wine readers should buy by the case. It’s not going to be the longest-lived St Joseph out there, but it’s absolutely loaded with character. I was able to drink a bottle of this over lunch and it’s one of those bottles that’s always the first to be emptied. Ripe, polished and sexy, with medium-bodied richness, it has perfumed notes of dark fruits, graphite, crushed flowers and spice in an ethereally textured, seamless package.” Wine Advocate 92 Points
