93 points: M. Chapoutier St.-Joseph Les Granits 2013
Lively pepper and bay notes lead the way, followed by more savory details that are easily absorbed by the core of juicy cherry and blackberry fruit. Drink now through 2023.—J.M.
93 points: M. Chapoutier St.-Joseph White Les Granits 2013
A solid white, with a core of peach, melon, nectarine and Jonagold apple flavors, all laced with honeysuckle, heather and chamomile notes. Racy and pure finish. Drink now through 2023.—J.M.
92 points: M. Chapoutier Crozes-Ermitage Les Varonniers 2013
An underlying loamy note pushes the core of steeped plum and blackberry fruit, while charcoal, bay and iron details stream through the finish. Best from 2017 through 2022.—J.M.
