Viognier Domaine Barou A. O. C. St Joseph 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This was decidedly open on the nose with sweet violet notes, hints of peach and grapefruit, all wrapped up in creamy red fruit, accented with spicy notes of rosemary, green tea, coffee and a hint of caramel. Over the course of the evening, these aromatics faded noticeably. On the palate, this is a touch dull and chunky with fairly significant tannins under plum and almost black cherry fruit. This is a crowd pleaser, but I found the palate to be a bit uninteresting, so the points came mostly from the wonderful aromatics. I wouldn’t wait too long to enjoy this. 89pts
