The 2016 Saint Joseph les Oliviers Blanc came out of barrel in September and was scheduled to be bottled at the end of November. It shows a tight, restrained nose but a broad, expansive feel on the palate. Honey and melon notes are rich, balanced by hints of white pepper on the long finish. It’s one of the best examples of white Saint Joseph on the market. (JC)
This has a wealth of nougat, honey and butterscotch with grilled peaches and spiced pears. The palate is glossy, smooth and even. Terrific length. Concentrated, fresh-pear, spiced-melon and honey flavors. Nice and compact. Drink or hold.
Limpid yellow-gold. Intense, mineral-accented Meyer lemon, peach and pear aromas are complemented by deeper honey and sweet butter nuances. Tightly wound citrus and pit fruit flavors unfurl with air, picking up a suave floral character and a hint of smoky minerality. The impressively long, penetrating finish shows no rough edges and leaves behind lively citrus pith and honeysuckle notes. (JR)
The 2016 Saint Joseph Les Oliviers Blanc is tighter and more focused, with ample minerality in its apple blossom, citrus, and honeyed aromas and flavors. A rich, medium to full-bodied, concentrated white, with good acidity and length, it’s drinking great today but will hold for another 2-3 years, and keep even longer if you’re so inclined.
