Vintages 2011

Wine Advocate #210 - Dec 2013

Score : (89-91)

The 2011 Saint-Joseph, which comes all from the southern part of the appellation, is 100% Syrah that’s aged all in 2-year-old barrels. Classy all around, with notions of smoked blackberries, hung game, pepper and chocolate, it is complex and nuanced with a seamless, beautifully textured profile on the palate. Most likely an outstanding effort, it has loads of Northern Rhone character and should have a decade of longevity. Jeb Dunnuck.

 

 

Gault&Millau

Score : 14/20

Joli nez sur les fruits rouges à noyaux, la rafle et les fruits bleus. En bouche la mâche est souple, sans entrave, elle s'allonge sur des notes d'amande fraîche et de poivre blanc.
