Professional Wine Reviews for Domaine Coursodon Saint Joseph Blanc Le Paradis St. Pierre Marsanne 2014

Rated 92 by Decanter
Pale gold. Intense citrus pith, orchard fruit and floral aromas are accompanied by suggestions of ginger and smoky minerals in the background. Shows very good density and vivacity, offering juicy, mineral-tinged Meyer lemon and pear nectar flavors and a suave honeysuckle nuance. Finishes with resonating stoniness and excellent persistence, leaving a bitter pear skin note behind. (Vinous)
Rated 92 by Robert Parker
Made in a richer, fuller style, the 2014 St Joseph le Paradis St Pierre Blanc is the top white of the estate and checks in as a blend of 90% Marsanne and 10% Roussanne, all from the Paradis lieu-dit, and it sees 12 months in barrel. Buttered apples, honey, brioche and liquid rock nuances flow beautifully to a medium-bodied, balanced, layered and textured white that just screams, “Drink me!” It’s one of the most successful whites in the appellation and will have a decade or more of longevity. Unfortunately, there are less than 400 cases made.

Winery Domaine Coursodon

Region: Rhone Valley

The southern French wine region of the Rhone Valley has been home to wine-makers for over two thousand years, with the first grapevines of the region being cultivated in around 600 BCE when the ancient Greeks arrived with their knowledge of viticulture and eagerness to produce more wine. Today, the region is famed around the world for the excellence of its produce, and has dozens of wineries making the most of the wide range of grape varietals which flourish there. In the northern sub-region, the continental climate and brisk winds coming off the Central Massif allow wineries to grow a smaller range of varietals – predominantly Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier, whereas the southern, more Mediterranean sub-region allows far more range. Here, dozens of varietals are grown for the production of white, red and rosé wines, all packed full of flavor and able to express the unique terroir they are grown on.

Country: France

France is renowned across the globe for its quality wines and the careful expertise which goes into making them, but what is truly remarkable about this relatively small country is the vast range of wines it produces in such huge amounts each year. Not only are the finest red wines in the world said to come from the beautiful regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, but elsewhere in the country we find the Champagne region, and areas such as the Rhone Valley and the Loire, whose white wines consistently receive awards and accolades by the plenty. This range is a result of the great variety of climatic conditions and terrain found in France, coupled with generations of wine makers working within single appellations. Their knowledge of specific terroirs and grape varieties has, over time, perfected the production of wines within their region, and the end results continue to impress the world to this day.
