E. Guigal Saint-Joseph Lieu-Dit Rouge 2015 (94 JD)
“The 2015 Saint Joseph Lieu Dit Saint Joseph boasts a huge nose of black raspberry and cassis fruit intermixed with lots of spice, roasted meats, pepper, and herbs. Thick, unctuous and opulent, with clean acidity and ripe tannin, it’s a blockbuster.”
A result of its quality, Guigal’s Saint-Joseph Lieu Dit Rouge comes from the “Saint-Joseph” vineyard that gives the appellation its name. This site convinced the Guigals to work in Saint-Joseph and help to restore the historic perception of Saint-Joseph as an appellation of utmost quality. The 100% Syrah wine has complex and deep black fruit, floral, spice and mineral characteristics. Despite its concentration and powerful attack, the wine retains the trademark elegance that Saint-Joseph offers.
