Le Clos (0.75 L)
The 2017 Saint-Joseph Le Clos takes intensity and richness in Saint-Joseph to virtually another level. Loaded with dense, ripe fruit from its facing slopes, it should prove to be a great, long-lived wine. Plum and blueberry notes merge seamlessly with crushed stone to create a concentrated, full-bodied wine, with terrific structure and length. No, Michel, I’m not giving this 100 points, but it is darn good, among the best St. Joes I’ve ever tasted.
