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

Rated 93 by Decanter
Opaque ruby. Spicy, highly perfumed aromas of cherry, black currant and smoky minerals are backed by a vibrant floral note. Gently sweet and expansive on the palate, offering energetic blackberry and cherry compote flavors that show excellent concentration and thrust. Taut, focused and penetrating on the strikingly persistent, smoke-tinged finish, with dusty tannins providing shape. Don't plan on opening this one for a while. (Vinous)
Rated 93 by Robert Parker
The inky colored 2014 St Joseph le Paradis St Pierre (100% Syrah that will see 14 months in 5% new demi-muids) reveals tons of granite character in its peppery herbs, and earthy black and blue fruits. Coming all from the Paradis lieu-dit, which lies just to the west of the estate (located in the village of Mauves), this medium plus-bodied, elegant, nicely concentrated Syrah has more depth and density than the l'Olivaie cuvee and should have a broader drink window.

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

Winery: Domaine Coursodon

Varietal: Syrah

There continues to be much debate surrounding the name of the Shiraz/Syrah grape varietal, with many experts still quite unsure which came first. Indeed, even the origins of this varietal are more or less unknown, despite it being most commonly associated with the Rhone Valley of France, and New World countries, most notably Australia. However, its popularity and unique characteristics have seen it planted all over the world, where it continues to impress with its powerful flavors and wonderfully spicy notes of pepper and clove. Shiraz/Syrah wines are renowned also for their versatility, and are regularly used in single variety still and sparkling wines, as well as blended and oak aged wines which demonstrate its ability to express its terroir and secondary flavors very well.

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

Year in, year out, France enjoys its prestigious reputation as the producer of the finest wines in the world. With a wine making history which spans several thousand years and owes its expertise to the Romans, it comes as little surprise that this most highly esteemed of the Old World wine countries continues to impress and enchant both novices and experts to this day. Despite the rise in quality of wines from neighboring European countries, not to mention the New World, the French wine industry continues to boom, with up to eight billion bottles being produced in recent years. However, France prides itself on always putting quality before quantity, and the wide range in fine produce is a testament to the dedication and knowledge of the wineries across the country. Indeed, from rich and complex reds to light and aromatic white wines, French wines are as varied and interesting as they are enjoyable to drink, making this country a firm favorite for wine lovers across the globe.
