2018 M. Chapoutier "Les Granits" St-Joseph Blanc

SKU #1551345 97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A killer wine as always, the 2018 Saint Joseph Les Granits Blanc reveals a medium gold color as well as powerful notes of white currants, toasted spices, brioche, quince, and crushed rock. With beautiful richness, medium to full body, no hard edges and a great finish, it's consistently one of the great whites in the appellation. Inner quote mark (12/2019)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Ripe and round, the 2018 Saint-Joseph Les Granits Blanc is a lovely example of this cuvée, combining full-bodied richness with citrus zest and freshness. Melon and tangerine notes fill out the ample palate, lingering delicately on the finish. (JC) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Good freshness and precision. Rounded, plenty of body and weight, but also depth, real generosity of body, partly through alcohol. Honeysuckle, pithy citrus notes combine with good length and real mineral drive leading to a saline finish. Drinking Window 2020 - 2026. (MW) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark 100% Marsanne. Maximum new-oak influence at this stage, liberally doused with sweet spice and dairy. Plenty of almond, apricot, hazelnut and peach too, plus a dash of salinity on the finish to give savoury tension. The oak has a lot of influence, but the sheer power of flavour is convincing. 17/20 points. (RH) Inner quote mark (6/2019)
