The 2017 Faury St Joseph VV is getting better every time we taste it, so we wanted to give everyone a last call on it. This wine would pair perfectly with the pepper-infused Akesson's Single Plantation Chocolates from Madagascar we just offered early today!
Our original offer:
We tasted this yesterday, and what an amazing follow up the 16's this is. Slightly more vibrant and more powerful than the previous vintage yet still has fantastic complexity and depth. This is Gonon killer, one of the best St. Jo's you can spend your money on and tremendous value. Impressively lush mouthfeel and balance, this will only get better with age and is one of the hottest buys in the Northern Rhone right now.
Vinous (Josh Raynolds) 93 points! "Brilliant magenta. Highly perfumed, mineral-accented aromas of dark fruit liqueur, pungent flowers, olive and cracked pepper show very good clarity and energetic lift. Juicy blackberry, boysenberry and floral pastille flavors display excellent clarity and velvety texture. The impressively long, floral-driven finish features well-knit tannins and lingering spice and mineral notes."
