94-97 Points - Jeb Dunnuck (erobertparker.com)

More focused and delineated than the Les Granits release, the 2014 Saint Joseph le Clos comes from a mostly east-facing parcel that's located high up on the slope. Surprisingly, it’s an early ripening parcel that’s harvest in mid-September in most vintages. Crème de cassis, liquid rock, graphite and violets characteristics all flow to a full-bodied, structures and layered Saint Joseph that has uncommon density, concentration and depth. It will have two decades of longevity.

Zalto Denk-Art Bordeaux Glass

The Zalto Bordeaux glass is recommended for weightier style reds, probably our most widely used glass when tasting in house, this glass is great for many different wines. The large bowl helping aerate and soften tannins whilst accentuating the wine's depth and concentration. The Bordeaux glass is the ideal choice for Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Zinfandel, Bordeaux or Rhône style blends and many other red wines. Surprisingly, it is also the glass of choice for oaked Chardonnay, the shape of the bowl accentuating the balance of ripe fruits and oak.

Region

The Rhône is a wine region in southern France situated in the Rhône River valley and is generally divided into two sections – the Northern Rhône and the Southern Rhône. The Northern Rhône is famous for its red wines made from the Syrah grape occasionally blended with a little Viognier and white wines made from blends of Marsanne and Roussanne as well as varietal Viognier wines. The most famous of these wines are the Syrah’s from Hermitage, Crozes Hermitage, Cote Rotie and Cornas and white wines from Condrieu, Chateau Grillet and Hermitage. In the Southern Rhône wines are generally produced from blends of grapes – the more well-known areas of production being Chateaueneuf du Pape and the more reasonable prices wines from the Côtes du Rhone. Here red wines are made from blends of several varietals, more often than not these include Grenache Noir, Mourvedre and Syrah (known as the GSM blend). We can highly recommend the Crozes Hermitage from Georges Reynaud which also received a gold medal from Decanter.
