E. Guigal Saint Joseph 2019
This cuvée always delivers, and the base 2019 Saint Joseph is solid. Cassis, graphite, and some floral notes show on the nose, and it's medium to full-bodied, has plenty of oomph, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It should certainly be an outstanding wine and evolve for 10-12 years.
Guigal's 2019 Saint-Joseph shows the bottling's characteristic granitic austerity and restraint, allied to notes of crushed stone and cassis. It's medium to full-bodied, smooth and polished, with a silky feel to the finish.
Juicy and direct, with an open-knit core of bitter plum and red cherry notes laced with singed balsam wood, red tea and savory accents. Drink now through 2028. 10,000 cases made, 750 cases imported.
