Vintages 2013

 

eRobertParker.com #216 - Dec 2014

Score : 91

Offering more richness, texture and flesh, the shockingly good 2013 Saint Joseph Blanc (all from the southern part of the appellation) is medium to full-bodied, ripe and downright sexy, with tons of fruit, integrated acidity and a great finish. Loaded with notes of white currants, citrus blossom and toasted almonds, enjoy it over the coming 3-5 years. Jeb Dunnuck.

 

Gault & Millau

Score : 15/20

Voici une cuvée incisive et gorgée d'un jus de raisin emporté par des notes délicatement exotiques. Un grain affiné par le terroir granitique et salivant, iodée, laisse une structure affinée par la fraîcheur et svelte par sa finalité.
