Dr Frank Pinot Gris 2011
The new owners' 2005's, mark the begining of a ressurrection of the Jaboulet reputation for quality that existed until the turbulent period of late 1990s and early 21st century. The 2005 St. Joseph Le Grand Pompee exhibits a dark ruby/pruple color and notes of plum, raspberries, and cherries, with hints of mineral and pepper. It is a nice, fruit-driven wine to drink over the next 5-6 years. Parker-89pts.
