Wine Tasting Notes Score
Saint-Joseph Le Blanchard Youthful purple. Mineral- and spice-accented aromas of dark berries and violet on the expressive nose. At once fleshy and lithe, offering appealingly sweet blackberry, cherry liqueur and spicecake flavors, plus a building suggestion of smokiness. Shows very good clarity on the nicely persistent finish, which features silky tannins and lingering spice and floral nuances. (90-92)
