St-Joseph

St-Joseph is an appellation in the Northern Rhone. 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

  • D, I can't usually bring myself to buy a case of anything unless I can break it up and resell some.  And my "buyers" can't be relied on to buy wines over $30.  Can't blame them, since I've been introducing them to great stuff at that price and under. Drinking the same vintage of the same wine 12 times isn't something I do.  Too many things to ex... Read More

  • Dinner was a really interesting fish dish with an olive sauce.  I didn't have exactly the right wine at the ready (St. Joseph, maybe) so we went with Madame Preston, from Lou Preston's place up on Dry Creek.  His Zin is just okay and certainly overpriced IMO compared to Rockpile, Talty, and some others, but this wine, a Marsanne/Roussane/Viognie...

  • Greg, if you do the Furmint v. Chenin test, I want to be there.  I like my whites so high in acid that most people wouldn't really find it enjoyable.  And those are two of my favorites.  I've had a little Tokaji (including that crazy Essencia with you and JD at Snooth HQ), but I've had plenty of dry Furmint and I really liked it.  Of  course, I ...

  • Domaine Christophe Pichon Saint-Joseph White 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A subtle, vaguely floral scent. On the palate, this wine leaps at you, strong, at the back of the tongue... before slowly drifting forwards. Like a child who bursts into a dinner party, desperately excited and screaming at the top of his lungs. Then realizes everyone's staring at him, all a little angry he's interrupting their party. The boy ... Read More

  • I'd add just this:  There are some tasting rooms for smaller producers that don't have their own wineries.  Some are good, some not as good, and it's hard to go through them all.  But I recommend Steve Law's terrific St. Joseph-like Syrah at MacLaren.  Patz and Hall is great, too. I get nothing for endorsing them but good treatment and that nice... Read More

  • OH YEA- The Barnett Rattlesnake Hill is an absolutely sensuous experience. Two years ago my boss gave me 6 bottles since he and his wife preferred Pinot style wines. Lucky me.Had a 94 Dominus last Sat that my sisters boss gave her. I thought it may be over the hill but it was elegant and had a delicate long finish. He has over a million.$ worth ... Read More

  • Picked up a three pack today. One to pop tonight '13 Bedrock Old Vine that was on the shelf at Andy's Produce, a new selection to try out soon to see what it's got '12 Forks on the Left Mixed Blacks and one to lay down for a nap '11 Chave Saint-Joseph. The last two came from ACME in St. Helena. Got to taste a local buzz wine this morning at ACME... Read More

  • But comrades, the northern Rhone has always been very good as many of you intimate; however, as people discover "undiscovered" wines (read cheaper, unpronounceable, appellations that evoke the Crisis of the 3rd Century in Rome - or perhaps, the spread of certain heresies of the early Mother Church, or something more "exotic" like the Mistral) th...

  • St. Joseph can be incredibly tasty, and it can pair well with some things that weightier N. Rhones don't, but I think it will never have a ton of cachet because the area is larger and has expanded into some dicey vineyard land.  I also don't think of it as a wine that is going to gain a lot with age, but I'm open to being converted.  C-H is also...

  • No mystery I love Syrah and got turned onto it some years ago by a N. Rhone that I had at a restaurant in Sonoma.  But here it goes again, latest estimates for the auction price at HartDavisHart:1983 Côte Rôtie, Côte Brune, Cuvée Reservée, Marius Gentaz-Dervieux (12 bs) $15000-22000Now I grant you that's not exactly DRC or Latour level pricing ...
