Professional Wine Reviews for Domaine Coursodon Saint Joseph Silice 2014

Rated 91 by Vinous Media
Bright violet. High-pitched aromas of fresh red berries and pungent flowers are complemented by dusty mineral and cracked pepper nuances. Offers sappy red fruit flavors and shows very good depth and seamless texture; slow-building spiciness and a touch of anise appear on the back half. Emphatically fruity and forward, finishing with fine-grained, silken tannins and a lingering raspberry note. (Vinous)
Rated 90 by Wine Advocate
Already in bottle and a charming, elegant and fruity wine that readers should snatch up, the 2014 St Joseph Silice offers classic northern Rhône notes of black raspberries, smoked meats, hints of minerality and pepper in a medium-bodied, fresh, lively package. Coming from terroirs located around the Mauves, Tournon and Saint-Jean-de-Muzols, and completely destemmed, it spent 12 months in mostly older demi-muids. Drink it anytime over the coming 5-6 years.

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.
