Suckling über: Saint Joseph

-- Suckling: A plush and fleshy vintage with plenty of red plum, orange rind and darker fruits. The palate has neatly cut dark stones (granite), dark plum and bright acidity. This has dark coal smoke, a black stone edge and deep effortless power in the mouth. 95-96/100


Winespectator über: Saint Joseph

-- Winespectator: Very alluring, this red cuts a broad swath, as velvety-textured cassis, plum and blackberry puree flavors move through, infused with warm anise, black tea and mesquite notes. The mouthwatering acidity is well-buried through the finish, lending this somewhat weighty wine a mouthwatering character. 95/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: Saint Joseph

-- Jeb Dunnuck: There are two Saint Joseph releases in 2015, and Jean-Louis finally decided to bottle his Le Clos cuvée separately. Hats off to him as both wines are up with the crème de la crème of the appellation. Looking at the classic 2015 Saint Joseph, this beauty offers loads of kirsch, currants, and blackberry fruits intermixed with more smoked meats, cedar, and minerality. It’s a rich, powerful, mineral-laced Saint Joseph to drink over the coming 10-15 years. 94/100


Galloni über: Saint Joseph

-- Galloni: Inky ruby. Pungent, deeply pitched aromas of cassis, black raspberry, candied licorice and violet are complicated by suggestions of olive and smoky minerals. Smooth and seamless on the palate, offering impressively concentrated black and blue fruit and floral pastille flavors and a sexy spicecake flourish. Becomes sweeter and livelier with air, with slow-building tannins adding grip to the extremely long, sappy and floral-accented finish. 94/100
