The inky colored 2014 St Joseph le Paradis St Pierre (100% Syrah that will see 14 months in 5% new demi-muids) reveals tons of granite character in its peppery herbs, and earthy black and blue fruits. Coming all from the Paradis lieu-dit, which lies just to the west of the estate (located in the village of Mauves), this medium plus-bodied, elegant, nicely concentrated Syrah has more depth and density than the l’Olivaie cuvee and should have a broader drink window.

Opaque ruby. Spicy, highly perfumed aromas of cherry, black currant and smoky minerals are backed by a vibrant floral note. Gently sweet and expansive on the palate, offering energetic blackberry and cherry compote flavors that show excellent concentration and thrust. Taut, focused and penetrating on the strikingly persistent, smoke-tinged finish, with dusty tannins providing shape. (Vinous)
