Guigal Saint Joseph 2005

Awards: 

  • Robert Parker score : 89 points

 


 

Tasting Notes: 

The backward 2005 St.-Joseph has shut down since I first tasted it from barrel. It reveals a dark ruby/purple color along with notions of underbrush, forest floor, licorice, and red as well as black currants. Deep, medium-bodied, tannic, and tightly-constructed, it requires 2-3 years of bottle age, and should age well over the following 12 years.
