  • French Red Rhone Wine, Domaine Christophe Pichon 2012 Saint-Joseph

    Domaine Christophe Pichon
    2012 Saint-Joseph
     

    $25

    A light but elegant Saint-Joseph, created with Syrah grapes grown on the upper half of granitic hillsides and aged 9 months in oak. We find it great for everyday drinking.

    • Light, fruity, grapey scents mingle with suggestions of caramel, butter, and ripe red fruit. Straightforward and immediately appealing on the palate with an attractive, sapid quality. Good body, light tannins, and good acidity combine for a balanced flavor profile. Savory, subtle, restrained. Appealing now but likely to soften somewhat with another year or two in bottle.

      Food pairing: Lamb; sausages; grilled or barbecued meat; pungent stews; pepper steak; dishes flavored with olives or pungent herbs

  • French Red Rhone Wine, Domaine Christophe Pichon 2011 Saint-Joseph

    Domaine Christophe Pichon
    2011 Saint-Joseph
     

    $25

    A light but elegant Saint-Joseph, created with Syrah grapes grown on the upper half of granitic hillsides and aged 9 months in oak. We find it great for everyday drinking.

    • A Syrah that’s both a great value for everyday drinking and good to have a stock of in the cellar. Flavors of dark berries and spice, solid structure, and nice acidity. Very rich and ripe. Ready to drink, but I would recommend cellaring it through 2017–2019.

      Food pairing: Grilled lamb

  • French Red Rhone Wine, Domaine François Merlin 2011 Saint-Joseph

    Domaine François Merlin
    2011 Saint-Joseph
     

    $27

    This is a robust Saint Joseph, strong and firm, particularly when compared to Pichon’s Saint Joseph. We advise giving it a little time in the cellar before drinking.

    • An easy-drinking, cool climate Syrah with tangy raspberry notes and good balance. Slight charcoal aromas on the nose, but raspberry is the key player. A nice wine to have on hand to serve with grilled lamb or other meat.

      Food pairing: Lamb kebobs

  • French White Rhone Wine, Domaine Christophe Pichon 2012 Saint-Joseph

    Domaine Christophe Pichon
    2012 Saint-Joseph
     

    $27

    Rarely exported, this white Saint-Joseph is made of 100% Marsanne grapes, grown on granitic soil. More flavorful and fruity than an Ermitage White, with more richness and breadth on the palate than a Saint-Peray.

    • A nose characterized by toasty scents with hints of honey, butter, and ripe figs. Good body. Clean fruit on the attack, followed by a richer, slightly unctuous mid-palate. Soft, round, approachable. Notable for attractive, slightly musky scents and flavors developing on a moderately long finish.

      Food pairing: Chicken; veal; pasta in cream sauce; risottos featuring asparagus, mushrooms, or other strongly scented additions; rich shellfish dishes; strongly flavored, fleshy fish such as sturgeon

  • French Red Rhone Wine, Domaine François Merlin 2012 Saint-Joseph

    Domaine François Merlin
    2012 Saint-Joseph
     

    $27

    This is a robust Saint Joseph, strong and firm, particularly when compared to Pichon’s Saint Joseph. We advise giving it a little time in the cellar before drinking.

    • Exotic notes with plenty of spice — particularly anise and black pepper. Plenty of juicy raspberry and smoked meat on the palate. Complex and delicious.

      Food pairing: Korean BBQ

  • French Red Rhone Wine, Domaine du Monteillet 2011 Saint-Joseph

    Domaine du Monteillet
    2011 Saint-Joseph
     

    $29

    Made from grapes almost entirely destemmed, this wine is sourced from young Syrah vines and aged in demi-muid barrels. The result is a fresh Syrah with immediate appeal.

    • The nose overflows with licorice and dark fruit, with meat and truffles. Full bodied on the palate with violets, blueberries, and other dark fruit flavors. Substantial, with supple tannins and great concentration contributing to the dense texture. Likely to be ready in 2016–2017.

      Food pairing: Roast pork, wild boar, sausage, hearty meat dishes

  • French Red Rhone Wine, Domaine du Tunnel 2011 Saint-Joseph

    Domaine du Tunnel
    2011 Saint-Joseph
     

    $30

    Drinkable now, but will improve with age. This is a rich, strong, beautiful wine, made from terraced Syrah parcels south of Tournon.

    • A very deep, inky red with rustic, meaty, earthy scents on the nose along with a streak of violets and ripe, red fruit. The palate, mirroring the nose, is suggestive of violets and bright fruit but also something earthy and meaty. Beautifully balanced with brisk acidity, seductive fruit, and prominent but delicate tannins. An unusually nuanced and elegant example of wine from Saint-Joseph—an example of what this appellation can achieve at its best.

      Food pairing: Chicken with morels, ratatouille, duck, lamb, turkey, lasagna, pizza

  • French Red Rhone Wine, Domaine du Tunnel 2012 Saint-Joseph

    Domaine du Tunnel
    2012 Saint-Joseph
     

    $31

    Drinkable now, but will improve with age. This is a rich, strong, beautiful wine, made from terraced Syrah parcels south of Tournon.

    • A deep, inky red color. A slightly restrained nose suggests blueberries, cocoa, and hints of soy. Although somewhat closed, it still has real presence on the palate, boasting dark fruit, cocoa, and blueberries. Still rather closed, it suggests an attractive softening in the years to come. A wine to watch.

      Food pairing: Lamb; sausages; grilled or barbecued meat; pungent stews; pepper steak; dishes flavored with olives or pungent herbs

  • French Red Rhone Wine, Domaine du Monteillet 2010 Saint-Joseph Cuvée Papy

    Domaine du Monteillet
    2010 Saint-Joseph
    Cuvée Papy

    $36SOLD OUT

    Gold medal winner in the 2013 Sommelier Wine Awards. Sourced from 25-year-old Syrah vines on the domaine’s best hillsides, Cuvée du Papy is aged on lees for twice as long as the domaine’s regular Saint-Joseph, in 1/3 new-oak demi-muids. There is no fining at the end, just a light filtration to clear deposits. The result is a fragrant, plush and powerful wine.

    • A deep garnet color with simple, clean, red fruit scents on the nose overlaid with suggestions of herbs and violets and—distantly—even subtle hints of gardenia and coconut. On the palate, this wine’s solid structure is immediately apparent. Just enough acid to keep things lively offsets layers of mouth-filling red fruit, and good tannins support the fruit. Nevertheless, much seems masked. Will need time to develop its full potential. Likely to be approaching its peak around 2017–2018.

      Food pairing: Chicken with morels, ratatouille, duck, lamb, turkey, lasagna, pizza
