Guigal St Joseph 2005

Syrah from France - Rhone
Review Date : 17-May-2011
100% Syrah from 20-50 y.o. vines from the former J-L Grippat and Vallouit estates, aged 16 months in second use barrels. Ruby-red colour with good depth, this has a soft, full, richly ripe nose of red and dark berry fruits with black pepper, spices, game aromas and a touch of sulphide reduction. On palate, this is a vigorous, near robust wine with fullness and sweet fruit flavours enlivened by good acidity. The tannin extraction has provided significant grip, but is in balance with the fruit. A hearty wine that will keep 5-8+ years.  May 2011
