The 2015 Saint Joseph Les Granits is another knockout wine, and if it wasn’t for its Le Clos counterpart, it would be the wine of the vintage. Coming all from the namesake vineyard of the appellation (the lieu-dit Saint Joseph), it offers a huge nose of black raspberries, Provençal herbs, spice and saddle leather. Much more open, sexy and opulent than the more concentrated, yet backward Les Varonniers, it's an incredible wine to drink anytime over the coming two decades.
The full-bodied 2015 Saint Joseph les Granits is among the top wines of the appellation. Bursting with cassis, mocha and spice, it boasts a rich, creamy texture on the mid-palate, easing into a velvety finish backed by plentiful, powerful tannins. This may seem almost approachable, but patience will be rewarded. (JC)
Opaque ruby. Smoky cherry, blackberry, spicecake and licorice pastille aromas on the highly perfumed nose. Plush, open-knit dark fruit preserve flavors carry a peppery nuance and gain vivacity with aeration. Spicy and pliant on the impressively persistent finish, which shows appealing sweetness, gentle tannins and a late blast of smoky minerality.
The 2015 St.-Joseph Les Granits is tightly wound, with a strong iron note holding the core of blackberry and raspberry at bay, but there's terrific depth and drive here.
