Looking even better than it did from barrel, the 2016 Saint-Joseph Vignes de l'Hospice displays hints of crushed stone on the nose alongside ripe cherries and vanilla. It's full-bodied, rich and silky, showing a sense of granitic reserve on the palate, then adds hints of baking spices and flowering
garrigue on the long finish. (95) JOE CZERWINSKI

The oak is strident, but the fruit is finding its feet and the layers of smoky bacon, cedar and baking spice reveal very rich and ripe dark-plum, blackberry and tarry notes. The palate has terrific density and definition of tannin; this is really a feature and supports long, ripe dark-plum and black-cherry flavors. Drink over the next decade or more. (96) JAMES SUCKLING
