Professional Wine Reviews for Domaine Coursodon Saint Joseph L`olivaie 2014

Rated 92 by Wine Advocate
A wine I buy by the case, the 2014 St Joseph l'Olivaie comes from 60 plus year-old vines planted in pure granite soils. Seeing a four-week maceration, it aged in slightly more new French oak than the Le Paradis Saint Pierre release, and spends 14 months in 25% new small barrels and demi-muids. It exhibits tons of cassis and jammy blackberry fruit, licorice and crushed flowers to go with a medium-bodied, finesse-driven style on the palate. The purity here is superb and it has ripe, sweet tannin that emerge on the finish. It should drink nicely on release and hold through at least 2024.

Winery Domaine Coursodon

Region: Rhone Valley

There are few wine regions in the world with a history as long and illustrious as that of the Rhone Valley in France. For over two thousand years, wines have been produced in this region, benefited by the excellent, mineral-rich soils of the region, and the varied climate which allows a wide range of grape varietals to grow. The Rhone Valley is now split into two quite separate regions, with the north part being characterized by its cooler, continental climate and the limited number of grape varietals grown, and the southern sub-region being perfect for growing a wide range of grapes, and producing an exciting number of different wine styles. The Rhone Valley is associated with elegant, flavorful wines, and certain grape varietals such as Viognier and Syrah, which are adept at expressing the finer features of their terroir.

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.
