Another terrific Northern Rhône from Louis is the 2015 Saint Joseph, which comes all from granite terroirs and was aged in barrel. Plums, cassis, black raspberry and graphite characteristics emerge from this rich, full-bodied, impressively concentrated red that has present, yet sweet tannin. It will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring and shine for a decade.
Inky ruby. Powerful aromas of blackberry, violet and woodsmoke, plus a hint of cola that emerges with aeration. Sweet, densely packed and full-bodied, offering ripe cassis, blackberry, violet pastille and licorice flavors given lift and spine by juicy acidity. Spreads out and becomes spicier on the impressively long finish, which features chewy tannins and a sexy floral nuance. (JR)
A dynamic St-Joseph from Louis Barruol, this wine is powered by the mouthwatering pucker of sour cherries and pomegranate and a deep growl of tannins. Light and dark, lush and strict, the components keep the wine in a constant, enticing state of tension, notes of underbrush, spice and herbs adding detail. Made from sérine, an old variant of syrah, with 30 percent whole clusters, this is a serious St-Joseph, to drink now or hold another decade.
Impressive spicy red and black berry fruits, with smoky and gently meaty nuances, too.This has a fluid, smoothly rendered palate that is saturated in flavor. Drink now.
Shows a bright savory note, along with pepper and green olive hints amid the core of gently steeped raspberry and boysenberry fruit flavors. Keeps an herbaceous edge through the finish, along with lightly chalky tannins. A touch old-school and built on acidity. Put this in the cellar. Best from 2019 through 2030.
