awarded 94 points to Le Clos Saint-Joseph 2017.

“Deep, dark ruby. Smoke- and mineral-accented black and blue fruits, licorice and potpourri on the intensely perfumed nose. Plush, sweet and broad on the palate, offering sweet blackberry, cassis, cola and exotic spice flavors underscored by a core of juicy acidity. Shows superb depth as well as energy and finishes extremely long and supple, with rounded tannins that build steadily and add shape and gentle grip to the wine’s vibrant dark fruit.”
