“The 2017 Saint Joseph from Tunnel comes all from granite soils and spent 14 months in 3- and 4-year-old barrels. It has a killer bouquet of black raspberry and cassis fruit intermixed with ample spice, new leather, ground herbs, and dried flowers. With medium to full body, integrated acidity, ample tannin structure, and a beautiful sense of elegance and purity, it’s already hard to resist yet has the class to keep for over a decade. It’s another brilliant wine from this estate that’s unquestionably up with the quality of the Cornas releases.”
Enough can’t be said about the quality now coming from the domaine of Stéphane Robert. Both his reds and whites are world-class in every sense.
