Vidal Fleury Saint Joseph 2018

Product description

Quite a full red, some black highlights. On the nose blackcurrant, spice (nutmeg, pepper), fleeting animal touch. Strong and elegant tannin, fresh in the middle, touch of oak. Complex and long flavors based on blackcurrant, smoked ham and some black tea.

90+ Points - Jeb Dunnuck

The 2018 Saint Joseph appears to be a rounded, medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced effort that has textbook minerality as well as blue fruits, peppery herbs and violet notes. My money is on it being an outstanding wine and it should easily evolve for 7-8 years or more. 

90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Aged entirely in foudres, the 2018 Saint Joseph is a fine effort. Scents of crushed stone, blueberries and blackberries appear on the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate is plump and immediately appealing, and the finish surprises for its intensity and length.
