Coursodon Saint Joseph 'Silice' is a blend of grapes from younger vines giving great purity of fruit that is expressive of the variety and terroir with lots of charm. The wine shows dark fruit, some minerality, attractive pepper and fruit aromas and silky tannins.
Ruby colour. Mature black berry nose and full of fruit. A well balanced wine with fine tannins, which can easily be aged for a few years in cellar.
"One of my favorite estates in the Northern Rhône is that of the young Jerome Coursodon, who makes a bevy of brilliant St Josephs from his roughly 16 hectares of vines. He’s another progressive winemaker who has one foot in the past and one foot in the future, and the wines shows impeccable purity of fruit while remaining classic St Joseph. These 2015s are sensational wines and I suspect will be the greatest wines made yet from this estate. Don’t miss these wines!" Jeb Dunnuck, eRobertparker.com, December 2016
"The charming, supple 2016 Saint Joseph Silice was scheduled to be bottled the week after my visit. It shows attractive floral aromas, lush black cherry fruit, ample weight on the palate and a creamy mouthfeel. It should drink well on release and go for at least 5 years." 91 points, Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate, December 2017
