  • Good solid St Joseph with Northern Rhone typicity.

  • Double decanted, prominent nose of fruit and cedar. On the palate smoke, bacon, cedar, fruit, acid - WOW huge complexity, all harmoniously balanced. Delicious!

  • Very nice complex and mature fruit with bacon and earth. Gains weight with air and is really excellent in the end. Has a great balance.

  • Classic Guigal herbaceousness on the nose. Where this was better than the 2001 that I recently had is on the palate where the secondary flavors have appeared. Hints of leather and nutmeg in there. Solid finish. Drink up, I don't think this wine gets better from here.

  • 13% d'alcool, 100% Syrah
    Oeil : rouge sang, opacité 5/10, aucune trace d'évolution (orangé) à l'oeil, forte visosité en parois
    Nez : projection d'intensité 4/10, animal, sanguin, minéral, boisé fondu, fruité rappelant la mûre et les fruits noirs acidulés au second plan, empyrheumatique, touche éthérée, grande élégance, superbe et invitant
    Bouche : sec, ample, attaque franche et droite, touché satiné, acidité rafraîchissante+, tanins encore charnus et fins, aucun creux de bouche ici, amertume légère, persistance longue, rétro animale, végétale, minérale, fruitée, éthérée, anisée
    Observation complémentaire : bouchon long et en parfaite condition.
    Conclusion : beaucoup d'élégance ici et une très belle tenue pour ce St-Jo dont nous n'attendions pas tant après 10 ans et compte tenu du millésime 2002. Un vin tendu et fras, beaucoup de finesse. Nous le qualifierons d'excellent dans l'ensemble et malgré cette petite touche éthérée agaçante. L'horizon 2015 semble raisonnable, mais il est susceptible de vivre bien au-delà...
