Winespectator über: Saint Joseph

-- Winespectator: This has a lovely mouthfeel, with velvety waves of crushed plum and boysenberry reduction wrapped in sweet toast, bay leaf and alder notes. The long finish has a black tea note curling around and a late mineral twinge for contrast. Drink now through 2035. 1,750 cases made, 400 cases imported. 95/100


Galloni über: Saint Joseph

-- Galloni: Inky ruby. An expansive bouquet evokes ripe black and blue fruits, candied flowers and smoky bacon, along with suggestions of olive and pipe tobacco. Densely packed, spice-accented blackberry and cherry liqueur flavors show fine delineation and energetic lift thanks to a core of juicy acidity. A mineral nuance arrives with air and carries through a long, velvety finish framed by round, well-knit tannins. 94/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: Saint Joseph

-- Jeb Dunnuck: Showing similar to last year, the 2017 Saint Joseph offers textbook Saint Joseph minerality as well as notes of ripe red and black fruits, bacon fat, and peppery herbs. Medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced, and elegant, it's up with the crème de la crème of the appellation. 94/100


Suckling über: Saint Joseph

-- Suckling: Final blend in tank, immediately prior to bottling. This has fresh and exotic red fruit with plenty of spice and tarry nuances, plenty of fragrance and dry stony aromas, too. Elegant and plush with complex texture. The tannins are gently grippy. Finishes with chocolate and spice. Best from 2025. 93-94/100

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.
