Wine Critics Notes:

Wine Advocate - Score: (93-95)+ (2016 Dec.)

The inky black/blue-colored 2015 Saint Joseph Les Royes from the Courbis team was brought up in one-third each of new, once and twice-used barrels. It offers sensational notes of crème de cassis toasted bread, licorice and pen ink in a massive, rich, concentrated, layered style that is shocking in its depth and richness. It's a crazy good St Joseph.

Vinous - Score: 91 (2018 Apr.)

Bright violet. Powerful cherry and blackberry aromas, along with hints of smoky bacon, licorice and cracked pepper. Concentrated and energetic on the palate, offering juicy black and blue fruit flavors that put on weight and become sweeter with air. Closes very long, sappy and smooth, showing very good clarity and bite on the spicy, subtly tannic finish.
