Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"This wine is a unique expression of the excellence of the lieu-dit « Saint-Joseph » appellation and these vineyards are from amongst the very best of this up-and-coming appellation in the northern Côtes-du-Rhône. These very slopes lent their name to the Saint-Joseph appellation when it was created. The label was designed by Roger PFUND, a Franco-Swiss artist who is a specialist in the design of bank notes.

Straw yellow with golden tints. Very complex nose with oaky floral notes, hazelnuts and yellow fruit. Very full-bodied attack, fleshy fruit and round palate. Overall, a balanced palate with complex aromas and a roundness which is very characteristic of this Saint-Joseph which comes from the best terroirs of the appellation."
95/100 Jeb Dunnuck, Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate, Decemebr 2016 (2014 Vintage)
"Showing even better than when I tasted it last year, the 2014 St Joseph Lieu Dit St Joseph Blanc (93% Marsanne and 7% Roussanne, aged in 50/50 new and used barrels) offers awesome notes of quince, white currants, brioche and crème anglaise in a medium to full-bodied, impeccably balanced and layered style. Showing the inherent freshness and purity of the vintage, yet with no shortage of depth, drink it anytime over the coming 7-8 years. Note, this is the first year where the cuvee was not raised all in new barrels. Philippe commented that they wanted this cuvee to drink better in its youth, so they've pulled back slightly on the new oak."
