Colour: black and purple. Nose: the wine is intense on the nose and expresses a great deal of complexity and fine nuances, with delicate restraint: aromas of black fruits, spices (liquorice) delicately allied with more mineral, bloody notes. The final impression is one of more smoky aromatic notes (fireplace, soot, etc). Palate: on the palate, the wine is full and finely structured by coated tannins. The mouthfeel is powerful, well-balanced with lovely freshness and a lingering finish.

Wine AdvocateSofter and more approachable than the la Couronne de Chabot, the 2014 St Joseph la Croix de Chabot is a medium-bodied, charming effort that gives up lots of black raspberries, rose petals, hints of saddle leather and background meatiness. It too is impeccably balanced and leads with its fruit. Drink it over the coming 4-5 years.
