About

91-93

"The 2018 Saint Joseph Les Cotes from Paris is a beautiful, elegant wine that shines for its complexity and balance just as much as power and richness. Classy Saint Joseph blue fruits, violets, and damp rock-like minerality all define the bouquet, and it's nicely textured, silky, and elegant on the palate. I love the balance, and while it's going to be hard to resist on release, it should keep for over a decade, if you're so inclined. The Les Cotes is all destemmed and brought up in a mix of used barrels and stainless-steel tanks."

91 Joe Czerwinski - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2018 Saint Joseph Les Cotes is forward, plush and silky, with oodles of ripe cherries. It's full-bodied but does show hints of granitic restraint and a briny freshness that comes to the fore on the lengthy finish. While approachable young, it's not just a simple fruit bomb, there's some substance beyond the flesh."

Product Description:

Vineyards in the village of Ardoix about 30 km north of Cornas in the central part of the appellation. 10 and 20 year old vines. Prunes to only four bunches of grapes per vine (the norm is between five and seven) which concentrates the vines' growing power and cuts down on the need for green harvests.
