Winemaker Notes

A beautiful wine with intense color and a red crown along the edges, the 2010 La Joie reveals a silky, soft, and voluptuously fruity nose with a touch of discreet oak and fine spices. It opens with an opulent palate of red and black fruits, spices, and licorice before giving way to an impressively long finish. This is a wine with very fine tannins, a wine of balance between fruit and minerality. While it can be enjoyed young, this wine will be able to age for at least 20 years.

Blend: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot,5% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 96
Vinous
Bright ruby-red. Aromas of crushed cassis, bitter chocolate and espresso called to mind a top Pauillac. Densely packed and sappy, offering outstanding precision of dark fruit and mineral flavors and inner-mouth floral perfume. Still quite tight but the wine's building tannins and palate-staining length suggest that it will go on in bottle for two decades or more.
Rating: 96(+?)
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
With the lowest alcohol (14%), the 2010 La Joie is composed of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Copious aromas of incense, unsmoked cigar tobacco, Christmas fruitcake, cedar, underbrush, black currants and a hint of espresso roast emerge from this medium to full-bodied, rich, concentrated red. It needs 4-5 years of cellaring and should keep well for 2 to 3 decades.
