2018 Guy Farge "Passion de Terrasse" St-Joseph

SKU #1500713 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Consistently among my favorite Saint Joseph bottlings, the 2018 Saint Joseph Passion de Terrasses shows wonderful balance, concentration and length. It's an elegant, harmonious mélange of redcurrants and cherries, crushed stone and pencil shavings, plus more savory hints of black olives and leather. Medium to full-bodied, with fine-grained tannins, it's smooth and silky from start to long, long finish. (JC) Inner quote mark (5/2021)

Outer quote mark The 2018 Saint Joseph Passion De Terrasses is outstanding yet, as with the Terroir de Granit, needs 2-3 years of bottle age. Lots of blue fruits, violets, crushed stone, and barbecue smoke-like notes give way to a medium to full-bodied, nicely textured, balanced Saint Joseph. With good acidity and ripe tannins, it will evolve for 10-12 years. Inner quote mark (11/2020)

K&L Notes

Guy Farge took over the management of his family estate in 1980. Originally he sold his fruit to the Cave de Tain (where he worked) and then to Delas. In 2007, he began producing wines under his own label. Each year, the wines have grown and evolved as has Guy's winemaking prowess. He's now working with his son Thomas, and each bottling represents some of the best we have seen from his primarily granitic terroirs. The "Passion de Terrasse" is his oldest vines from sites in Aubert, La Roue and around the winery in Saint-Jean-de-Muzols. It is 100% Syrah fermented whole-cluster and aged in 400L barrels for about 12 months with a small portion of new wood. The results, as with all of Guy's wines, are pure, balanced expressions of his terroir.
