Domaine Louis Cheze Saint Joseph Anges 2015
Appearance of ruby color, limpid and deep. Nose of great complexity, black fruits, sweet, finely woody spices. Frank and straight mouth with harmonious tannins, very long finish and persistence. Pairs well with small game in sauce, braised red meats.
This sports lots of dark fig, blackberry and black cherry compote flavors, with singed mesquite and black tea notes. Fleshy and toasty in feel, but shows the drive and energy to carry this overt style well. Best from 2019 through 2025.-J.M.
