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

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

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.
