About

93+

"The medium ruby-colored 2016 Saint Joseph La Croix Des Vignes (this comes from a more south-facing slope to the left of the Vignes de Hospice) offers classic granite notes of black raspberries, crushed rocks, graphite, & violets, with subtle hints of bacon fat rounding out the bouquet. Textured, rounded, & supple, yet with integrated acidity, it's another winner from this estate that will keep for a decade or more."

93 Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media

"Inky ruby. Expressive dark fruit aromas are complemented by suggestions of candied flowers, olive and candied licorice, and a bright mineral nuance adds vivacity. Fleshy and open-knit, offering appealingly sweet blueberry and cassis flavors that show very good depth as well as energy and spicy lift. Manages to be both rich and lively and shows no rough edges. Finishes very long and smooth, the gentle tannins playing nicely with the wine's plush fruit."

91-92 James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com

"A wine with plenty of tar and dark-berry character. Asphalt undertones and decadence. Medium to full body, soft tannins and a juicy finish."

92 Joe Czerwinski - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The red-fruited 2016 Saint Joseph Domaine de la Croix des Vignes features cherry and olive notes. It's rich and velvety across the medium to full-bodied mid-palate, turning crisp and tart on the finish. Drink now through 2030."

90 Wine Spectator

"A toasty style, with focused black cherry and blackberry coulis flavors, framed by mocha and singed vanilla notes. Ends with a tobacco-edged finish. Best from 2020 through 2024. 75 cases made, 25 cases imported. — JM"
