Similarly styled and getting an “awesome wine” in the notes, the 2011 Saint Joseph Les Clos shows that this vineyard is for real. Creme de cassis, licorice, crushed rock, graphite and pepper all show in the glass, and it hits the palate with full-bodied richness and depth, crazy purity and blockbuster length. It too is possibly the wine of the vintage and certainly, one of the finest Saint Josephs I’ve ever tasted. - Jeb Dunnuck

Opaque ruby. Dark berries, violet oil, anise and smoky minerals on the deeply scented now. On the palate, intense blueberry and blackberry flavors become spicier with air and show very good clarity.

On the palate, intense blueberry and blackberry flavors become spicier with air and show very good clarity. Opens up nicely on the spicy, expansive finish, which is firmed by youthfully chewy but harmonious tannins.

Admirably fresh nose with fully ripe fruit and a strong mineral streak. Polished. Long and satsifying with good line. 17/20
