Galloni über: Saint Joseph

-- Galloni: Bright violet color. Explosive aromas of black and blue fruits, smoky Indian spices and minerals, with a suave floral quality in the background. Fleshy and expansive on the palate, but with excellent clarity and spicy lift to its blackberry and licorice flavors. The dark fruit element recurs on the long, seamless finish, which is framed by supple tannins that fold smoothly into the wine's lush fruit. 93/100


Parker über: Saint Joseph

-- Parker: The 2012 Saint Joseph, which was just bottled, showed beautifully, and I continue to see more and more terrific, world-class wines from this appellation. Exhibiting terrific blackberry, ground pepper, crushed rock and underbrush, it’s medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated and has an open, sexy style that’s already hard to resist. Drink it over the coming decade. 93/100

Wine Spectator über: Saint Joseph

-- Wine Spectator: Alluring, with a velvety feel to the raspberry pâte de fruit and blackberry compote flavors. Black tea and singed juniper notes stream through the finish, which is sneakily long and perfumed. Should stretch out more with some cellaring. Drink now through 2022. 93/100

Mein Winzer

Jean Louis Chave

Die Familie Chave erzeugt bereits seit sechshundert Jahren Hermitage und zählt zweifelsohne zu den besten Weinproduzenten der Welt. Die Weine der jetzigen Generation, Vater Gerard und Sohn Jean Louis, sind Kultweine erster Güte, ungemein rar und schwer zu finden.
