2018 Saint-Joseph Rouge, Vidal-Fleury
"The 2018 Vidal-Fleury Saint-Joseph Rouge is also made solely from Syrah and is dark and brooding. There are hints of violets on the nose whilst the palate is full of plums, damsons and spice with a noticeable swirl of dark chocolate on the finish."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator Magazine
Founded in 1781, Vidal-Fleury is located in the midst of the Côte-Rôtie vineyards in the Northern Rhône, and is the oldest continuously operating wine producer in the Rhône Valley. Jonathan Ray describes them as 'Rhône Royalty' and he is not wrong. Since the early days Vidal-Fleury has established a reputation for the production of high-quality wines which show individuality and the typicity of the different Rhône appellations from which they come.
Vidal-Fleury's modern renaissance began in 1984 when it was purchased by the Guigal family whose support allowed the business to flourish whilst still allowing it to operate independently, including a brand new winery allowing Vidal-Fleury to leave their cramped historic cellar and giving them the proper space to age and bottle their wines.
"Aged entirely in foudres, the 2018 Saint Joseph is a fine effort. Scents of crushed stone, blueberries and blackberries appear on the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate is plump and immediately appealing, and the finish surprises for its intensity and length."
