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

Additional Information on Domaine Coursodon Saint Joseph Blanc Le Paradis St. Pierre 2014

Winery: Domaine Coursodon

Region: Rhone Valley

The Rhone Valley of southern France is a particularly fascinating wine region, with a history that stretches back to at least six hundred BCE, when the ancient Greeks first began cultivating vines there. The region itself is split into two distinct sub-regions, with the northern sub-region being famed for its production of exceptional Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier wines, packed full of interesting character and expressing the terroir found there. The southern sub-region is home to an enormous variety of grapes, and produces red, white and rosé wines, and some of the world's most famous and adored blended wines. The continental climate of the region is ideal for growing grapes, and the winds which blow from the Central Massif help temper the heat in the vineyards, leading to very ripe fruits holding plenty of flavor.

Country: France

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
