St-Joseph

St-Joseph is an appellation created in 1956,although wine production in the area goes back to before the Romans,for red and white wines from 6 communes [extended to 26 in 1994] around the village of Tournon on the west bank of the Rhone river opposite Tain/Hermitage on the east bank..90% of wine production is of red wines.The wines were originally called Saint Joseph by Jesuit monks in the 17th century. The red wines for which it is best known are made from Syrah, and the whites are made from Marsanne and Roussanne. This appellation is not as prestigious as Hermitage or Cote-Rotie, and most of the wines are not as long-lived or as serious, which means, of course, that a bargain-hunter can find a true gem here.

St. Joseph on Snooth

  • J.L. Chave Selection Saint Joseph Offerus 2014

    Snoothrank:

    This is a very subtle wine, with more elegant and subtle treasures for the nose than usual for such a wine - to wit, beet, pork sausage, blueberry-plum confit and a hint of decayed fall leaf litter. Good acidity on entry with unsweetened chocolate, plum, and cola mid-palate. Finish is medium to long with soft, but diminished tannin. Slightly ... Read More

  • DV, Lynn and I managed to take a peek at Vessel this afternoon while cruising Oak Bay (sorry, I did not want to invite myself over... left you to recover from a week of work instead).  But on the little store in that quiet little commercial spot at the junction of Pandora and Fort, it is of, I would say, medium size, stock-wise, but owning a gre...

  • Here's an offer from another vendor on that list. Lots of mouthwatering classics here that are quite hard to find. Bottle prices in some cases are getting up there, others not as much. Many will need TLC considering their age, of course, but this vendor is reliable, and well keyed into the Napa scene.    Take a look at this list -- MAYACAMAS, HE... Read More
