More focused and delineated than the Les Granits release, the 2014 Saint Joseph le Clos comes from a mostly east-facing parcel that's located high up on the slope. Surprisingly, it’s an early ripening parcel that’s harvest in mid-September in most vintages. Crème de cassis, liquid rock, graphite and violets characteristics all flow to a full-bodied, structures and layered Saint Joseph that has uncommon density, concentration and depth. It will have two decades of longevity. (JD)
Inky purple. Highly perfumed, mineral- and spice-accented dark berries and candied violet on the nose. At once rich and lively, offering juicy, deeply concentrated black raspberry and cherry cola flavors plus a hint of smokiness. Turns spicier on the broad, clinging finish, which features building tannins and an emphatic echo of smoky minerals. (JR)
The tight core of red and black currant, blackberry and raspberry preserves is coiled up, while bay, savory and iron notes lead the way for now. Well-embedded acidity lurks throughout, suggesting this will be a winner once the elements stretch out and harmonize. (JM)
