2018 Maison Denuziere Condrieu J. Denuziere

While not yet bottled, the 2018 Condrieu J. Denuzière certainly looks to be an outstanding wine. Terrific notes of honeyed peach, pineapple, and brioche all flow to a medium-bodied, rich, and nicely textured effort that has solid depth and density on the palate yet stays light on its feet.

2018 Maison Denuziere Saint Joseph Blanc

Not yet bottled, the 2018 Saint Joseph Blanc is still cloudy yet has clean, pure notes of spiced citrus, honeysuckle, brioche, and sappy herbs. With medium-bodied richness, nicely integrated acidity, and a clean finish, it should be a solid effort.

2018 Maison Denuziere Cornas J. Denuziere

Cedar, game, white pepper, and beautiful red and black fruits emerge from the 2018 Cornas J. Denuzière. This beauty is medium-bodied, has ultra-fine tannins, notable balance, and more than enough opulence and flesh.

2018 Maison Denuziere Cote Rotie J. Denuziere

All Syrah that was barrel fermented, the 2018 Côte Rôtie J. Denuzière has a big kiss of oak on the nose as well as solid red and black fruits, spice, and some meatiness. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, with good depth of fruit yet an angular, firm style, it's going to need 2-4 years of bottle age to integrate its oak, but it's certainly a solid wine. It will be interesting to see how this comes together in bottle.

2018 Maison Denuziere Crozes-Hermitage J. Denuziere

Coming from rocky, pebbly soils and spending plenty of time on lees, the 2018 Crozes-Hermitage J. Denuzière sports a saturated purple color as well as notes of blue fruits, crushed violets, ground pepper, and spring flowers. Ripe, opulent, and sexy on the palate, it's a rich, medium to full-bodied, concentrated Crozes Hermitage that has a slightly polished, modern vibe (which I think is more due to the lees contact than new oak). It's going to keep for a decade.

2018 Maison Denuziere Hermitage J. Denuziere

Coming from multiple lieux-dits and aging in 30% new French oak, the 2018 Hermitage J. Denuzière reveals a deep purple color as well as a powerful yet closed style that shows terrific purity of fruit, obvious minerality, a kiss of background oak, and medium to full-bodied richness. It's a promising, concentrated effort that's going to need 4-5 years of bottle age yet should cruise for two decades.

2018 Maison Denuziere Saint Joseph J. Denuziere

The spicy, pepper, incredibly complex 2018 Saint Joseph J. Denuzière was brought up in a mix of concrete tanks and once to third-fill barrels. Deeply colored, medium to full-bodied, and beautifully concentrated, it has classic notes of gamy meats, spring flowers, Christmas spice, and loads of bright berry fruit. It shows more tannins and structure with time in the glass, and I expect 2-4 years of bottle age will be warranted.

2017 Maison Denuziere Cote Rotie J. Denuziere

The 2017 Côte Rôtie J. Denuzière showed well, with a more modern style that still carries plenty of Côte Rôtie character. Plenty of red and black fruits, chocolate, spice, and flowers incense notes give way to a medium to full-bodied Côte Rôtie that has subtle background oak, good purity of fruit, and terrific overall balance. It's going to integrate its oak with 2-4 years of bottle age and keep for 10-15 years.
