2020 M. Chapoutier "Le Clos" St-Joseph (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1549046 95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2020 Saint Joseph Le Clos comes from a higher elevation, east-facing site south of Tournon, which would seem to be a cooler terroir, but this is an early ripening site that produces incredible wines. Cassis, violets, powdered granite, and bouquet garni give way to a medium to full-bodied, elegant, pure, and utterly seamless Saint Joseph that will have two decades of longevity. Inner quote mark (2/2022)

95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Dense black fruit overlaid with violets - very much in the Mauves style of Saint-Joseph. Peppery and spicy. Full-bodied without heaviness, this feels dense but not overly thick. Tannins are chalky but melting, like 100% pure cocoa. The oak is a little more pronounced than with Les Granits, but it's well integrated. Lifted finish. There's intense concentration and deep, dark tannins, but it's all very well balanced. May prove to be the vintage yet of Le Clos. (MW) Inner quote mark (6/2021)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2020 Saint-Joseph Le Clos, from an east-facing parcel planted in the late 1990s, shows little in the way of herbal or floral nuances, but it does deliver waves of black cherries and vanilla. Full-bodied and silky textured on the mid-palate, it's a bit tannic and drying but ripe and long on the finish. (JC) Inner quote mark (1/2022)
