Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Saint-Joseph Syrah 2015

$85.95

There are two Saint Joseph releases in 2015, and Jean-Louis finally decided to bottle his Le Clos cuvee separately. Hats off to him as both wines are up with the creme de la creme of the appellation. Looking at the classic 2015 Saint Joseph, this beauty offers loads of kirsch, currants, and blackberry fruits intermixed with more smoked meats, cedar, and minerality. It’s a rich, powerful, mineral-laced Saint Joseph to drink over the coming 10-15 years. Jeb Dunnuck

Unfortunately disappointing. Lacked structure, definition and energy. A bit too rich and clumsy. Not modern but lots of new world fruit. Hopefully it sheds some baby fat and transforms but unlikely.

Rich and flabby. Lacked texture. Classic n Rhône notes back no energy or crunch.

Unbelievable. Velvety smooth. Alluring aroma. Drinking well now but will definitely improve over many many years.

St Joseph, still tight. Took time to open, kick off the astringency, and hit the smooth currant fruit.
