    Winemaker's Notes:

    Because our harvesting finished in October, we managed to get a good ripening level, which is not always easy in the northern Rhone. Austerity is the enemy for St. Joseph winemaking! The malolactic fermentations went well through springtime, which allowed us to run a good work in the barrels. Nice structure, round tannins: it develops diverse aromatic dimensions. These various dimensions fight or combine, depending on the stage. Jasmin, rose, blackberry and wood coal notes.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Sleek, with a cassis, red licorice and floral profile, followed by a tangy, herb-tinged finish. Drink now through 2011.

    Barruol’s 2005 St.-Joseph is very much in keeping with the firm, closed, austere style of the vintage. Coming from the hillsides of Sereine, one of the best subsections of St.-Joseph, the wine has high tannins, a dark ruby/purple color, good, pure fruit, but is incredibly backward and will require patience.
