2018 Domaine Coursodon Saint Joseph Silice Blanc

Made from 100% Marsanne brought up in stainless steel, the 2018 Saint Joseph Silice Blanc sports a light gold color as well as a fruit-forward, pure, beautifully textured style. Offering notes of white currants, honeyed flowers, and spice, it has moderate acidity, loads of fruit, and a great finish. It doesn't have the complexity or straight-up purity of the Paradis Saint Pierre, but it offers loads of charm and upfront goodness.

I’ve raved about the quality coming from this estate in the past, and the young Jerome Coursodon continues to deliver the goods in every vintage. All of his wines come from steep, east, and south-facing, granite soils located outside the village of Mauve, in the southern part of the Saint Joseph appellation.

2018 Domaine Coursodon Saint Joseph Le Paradis Saint Pierre Blanc

One of the whites of the vintage in Saint Joseph is the 2018 Saint Joseph Le Paradis Saint Pierre Blanc, which offers a stunning bouquet of honeyed stone fruits, quince, flower oil, and crushed rocks. Rich and full-bodied, with moderate acidity, it has beautiful purity, no hard edges, and just terrific overall balance. It's a rock star of a white from this talented winemaker. I would drink bottles over the coming 5-7 years, but it should evolve for 15-20 years or more. This wine is 95% Marsanne and 5% Roussanne, all from south and southeast facing, granite parcels, and aged in barrel.

2018 Domaine Coursodon Saint Joseph Silice

Brought up in a mix of barrels and demi-muids, the 2018 Saint Joseph Silice looks to be brilliant, with a ripe, sexy, yet still classic Saint Joseph style. Black raspberries, cassis, toasted spice, white flowers, and hints of incense all emerge from the glass, and it's plush, medium to full-bodied, and seamless on the palate.

2018 Domaine Coursodon Saint Joseph L'Olivaie

More cassis, graphite, and liquid rock notes emerge from the 2018 Saint Joseph L'Olivaie. Brought up in 15% new French oak, it nevertheless has a classic, mineral-laced style, medium to full body, a kiss of background oak, and a gorgeous, layered textured. All destemmed Syrah, from 60-year-old vines and pure granite soils, aging in just 15% new French oak, it’s another killer wine from this estate that I’d be thrilled to have in the cellar.

2018 Domaine Coursodon Saint Joseph La Sensonne

While the 2018 Saint Joseph La Sensonne is brought up all in new oak, it's certainly not dominated by the élevage, and it offers beautiful purity of fruit as well as notes of crème de cassis, toasted spice, graphite, white flowers, and cured meats. Deep, rich, and powerful, it's a candidate for the wine of the vintage. This cuvée comes from a mix of terroir and the oldest vines of the estate, and it’s always brought up in new French oak.

2018 Domaine Coursodon Saint Joseph Le Paradis Saint Pierre

The flagship is the 2018 Saint Joseph Le Paradis Saint Pierre, a single vineyard release that comes from a steep, east/southeast-facing vineyard just behind the domaine. The wine was 80% destemmed and aged 15 months in a mix of barrels and demi-muids. It's also a candidate for the wine of the vintage, yet it offers a much more classic profile of ripe blackberry and currants fruits intermixed with lots of peppery herbs, crushed rocks, and violet aromas and flavors. Rich, powerful, and concentrated, it has the vintage's more rounded, charming style yet has loads of tannins, an expansive, sexy texture, no hard edges, and a great finish.

2017 Domaine Coursodon Saint Joseph L'Olivaie

The 2017 Saint Joseph L'Olivaie is a slightly smaller production release compared to the Silice and is brought up in 15% new French oak. It offers a beautiful bouquet of cassis, crushed violets, and graphite, with a kiss of background oak. It's a more rounded, polished, and textured Saint Joseph that has a touch of modern character, yet never loses its Northern Rhône soul. Drink it over the coming decade.
