Winemaker Notes

The 2015 offers something well above the norm – extraordinary density, mellowness, substantial length and a kind of reticence that bodes extremely well for future aromatics. Laden with fruit, youthfulness and organic components, it makes you wonder what the future holds. Peony, wild blueberry, liquorice and tobacco.

Blend: 100% Serine (an ancient form of Syrah).

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Another terrific Northern Rhone from Louis is the 2015 Saint Joseph, which comes all from granite terroirs and was aged in barrel. Plums, cassis, black raspberry and graphite characteristics emerge from this rich, full-bodied, impressively concentrated red that has present, yet sweet tannin. It will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring and shine for a decade.
Range: (91-93)
W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
A dynamic St-Joseph from Louis Barruol, this wine is powered by the mouthwatering pucker of sour cherries and pomegranate and a deep growl of tannins. Light and dark, lush and strict, the components keep the wine in a constant, enticing state of tension, notes of underbrush, spice and herbs adding detail. Made from Sérine, an old variant of Syrah, with 30 percent whole clusters, this is a serious St-Joseph.

James Suckling
Impressive spicy red and black berry fruits, with smoky and gently meaty nuances, too.This has a fluid, smoothly rendered palate that is saturated in flavor.

Chateau de Saint Cosme is the leading estate of Gigondas and produces the appellation’s benchmark wines. Wine has been produced on the site of Saint Cosme since Roman times, evident by the ancient Gallo-Roman vats carved into the limestone below the chateau. The property has been in the hands of Louis Barruol’s family since 1570. Henri and Claude Barruol took over in 1957 and gradually moved Saint Cosme away from the bulk wine business. Henri was one of the first in the region to work organically beginning in the 1970s. Louis Barruol took over from his father in 1992, making a dramatic shift to quality, adding a négociant arm to the business in 1997, and converting to biodynamics in 2010.

Spanning the longest stretch of river in the northern Rhône—from Condrieu in the north, to Cornas in the south—the heart of St.-Joseph lies directly across the Rhône River from Hermitage. While its soils are basically the same as Hermitage: granite, supplemented by sand and gravel, its east facing slope receives less sunlight than Hermitage, which causes less overall berry ripening on its Syrah vines. However, some of the best of them can rival any fine expression of Hermitage, Cote-Rotie or Cornas with concentrated black fruits, dark spices, crushed rock and violets. A general advantage of the region is that its Syrahs typically don’t need as much time in the bottle compared to a Cote-Rotie or Hermitage and are much easier on the bank account!

A textbook St.-Joseph red is firm with a core of minerality that is enhanced by savory and peppery qualities. Aromas and flavors of smoke, olives, herbs, and violets are common; its wines are dense in red and black fruit.

St.-Joseph is also a source of fine northern Rhône white wine. Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne grow well here and can be blended or made into single varietal wines. St.-Joseph whites are full and silky with citrus, pear and pineapple flavors and a rich bouquet reminiscent of honeysuckle, toasted nuts, spice and caramel.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Blends of Southern Rhône, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
