- Tasting Notes
The red-fruited 2016 Saint Joseph Domaine de la Croix des Vignes features cherry and olive notes. It’s rich and velvety across the medium to full-bodied mid-palate, turning crisp and tart on the finish. Drink now through 2030.

Limpid yellow. Ripe, expansive orchard and pit fruit aromas, along with suggestions of jasmine, chamomile and honeysuckle. Deeply concentrated but minerally and nervy as well, offering palate-staining tangerine, pear nectar and fennel flavors underscored and lifted by a vein of zesty minerality. Shows excellent clarity and mineral thrust on a very long, silky finish that emphatically repeats the pear and floral notes.

A wine with plenty of tar and dark-berry character. Asphalt undertones and decadence. Medium to full body, soft tannins and a juicy finish.
– James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com, Score: 91-92
A toasty style, with focused black cherry and blackberry coulis flavors, framed by mocha and singed vanilla notes. Ends with a tobacco-edged finish. Best from 2020 through 2024. 75 cases made.
