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

Rated 92 by Decanter
Deep ruby. Powerful mineral- and pepper-accented aromas of fresh blueberry, licorice and candied flowers, and a subtle hint of olive in the background. Juicy and seamless on the palate, displaying appealingly sweet black and blue fruit flavors that show excellent depth and clarity. Offers a suave blend of power and finesse, finishing with bright mineral lift and smooth tannins that add gentle grip and focus. (Vinous)
Rated 92 by Robert Parker
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

Varietal: Syrah

Whilst there remains plenty of debate over which is the 'correct' name for the Shiraz/Syrah grape varietal, nobody is in any doubt about the influence and popularity this grape has had over recent decades. For centuries, this varietal has been used in single variety and blended wines in the regions of France it is most closely associated with, yet the 20th century saw it become one of the definitive grape varietals of New World red wines, where its big, robust character and spicy, berry-rich flavors proved to be a hit with international audiences. Today, Shiraz/Syrah is said to be the seventh most widely planted grape varietal in the world, and is used for a remarkably wide variety of quality red wines – including still, sparkling and fortified varieties.

Region: Rhone Valley

For over two thousand years, the southern French region of the Rhone Valley has been home to wine-makers and wineries of many different types. The ancient Greeks were the first to discover that a wide range of grape varietals can flourish in the rich soils and micro-climates which typify the region, and little has changed to this day. In the modern age, the Rhone Valley is recognized around the world as the home of excellent quality white, red and rosé wines, as well as some of the most highly respected blended wines on earth. The region is split into two distinctive sub-regions, with the cooler, continental northern sub-region producing primarily Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier wines of exquisite quality, and the hotter southern sub-region growing a much wider variety of grapes.

Country: France

It is widely understood and accepted that the finest wines in the world come out of France. Whether you are drinking a vintage bottle from one of the famed Grand Cru wineries of Bordeaux - such as Chateau Margaux or Chateau Lafite-Rothschild - or a more simple and affordable bottle from one of the lesser known appellations in Burgundy, the likelihood is that the wine is packed full of intense and interesting flavors, and has a fine, balanced structure typical of almost all French produce. This reputation for excellence is taken extremely serious by the French, with dozens of regularly updated laws and regulations ensuring the quality and accurate labeling of wines. Such dedication and passion for fine wine, representative of the region in which it is produced, means customers can be assured that when they buy a bottle from France, they are buying something almost certain to please and delight.
