The stunning 2010 St.-Joseph ranks alongside the finest wines of the appellation, including Guigal’s l’Hospice and Chapoutier’s Les Granits. It boasts a dense purple color along with scents of kirsch, blackberries, crushed rocks, spring flowers and licorice. It needs 2-3 years of bottle age and should drink well for 15+ years thereafter. I have had the privilege of tasting at this brilliant family-owned estate for over 30 years. During that time, I have seen first-hand the glory of a true evolution from father Gerard Chave to his son, Jean-Louis, and of course, the Chave family has been doing this since 1472.
Inky purple. Musky blackberry and cherry aromas, with slow-building Indian spice and floral nuances. Lively, sharply defined dark berry flavors are refreshingly bitter and show superb depth. Gains strength and a powerful cola quality on the clinging, mineral-driven finish, which is broad, deep and sharply focused. (JR)
