Like a lot of 2015s, it's charming and approachable today, yet has the tannin and concentration to cruise in the cellar. This cuvée comes from a six-hectare, full south-facing vineyard in the southern part of the appellation, and was brought up in a mix of smaller barrels.

It offers sensational notes of crème de cassis toasted bread, licorice and pen ink in a massive, rich, concentrated, layered style that is shocking in its depth and richness. It's a crazy good St Joseph. - Jeb Dunnuck

Wine Spectator, January 2018
Ripe, fleshy and focused, with delicious warm plum sauce and blackberry confiture flavors coursing over graphite, anise and Christmas pudding notes. A fruit-dominant style. Drink now through 2021. 160 cases imported.–JM
