2017 Ferraton Père et Fils "Lieu Dit Saint-Joseph" Saint-Joseph (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1431008 95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Richly rendered, with lots of ganache and espresso notes leading off, followed quickly by waves of dark currant, plum and blackberry paste flavors. Singed tobacco and alder elements fill in on the finish. Features grip and drive to balance the heft. Well done. (JM) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The flagship 2017 Saint Joseph Lieu-Dit Saint Joseph comes from one of the top vineyards in the appellation and spent 12-14 months in oak. It's another saturated purple-colored 2017 that has beautiful minerality to go with notes of scorched earth, camphor, ground pepper, iron, and leafy herbs. As with a number of top releases in the vintage, it has lots of fruit yet is firm, concentrated, and tight as a drum on the palate. 94+ Inner quote mark (1/2019)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Saint Joseph Lieu-Dit Saint Joseph is a micro-cuvée from 60-year-old vines (two barrels have been made, approximately 600 bottles). It offers aromas of violets and crushed stone backed by flavors of plum and licorice. Full-bodied, firm and structured, it looks like it will need a couple more years to come around. (JC) Inner quote mark (1/2018)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Opaque violet color. Energetic, finely etched blackberry, cherry and floral scents are accented by spice and mineral topnotes. Concentrated black/blue fruit and spicecake flavors show sharp detail and vivacity thanks to a core of smoky minerality. Finishes impressively long and smooth, with dark berry and floral qualities, sneaky tannins and bright, mineral-driven persistence. (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2020)
