Saint Joseph Paradis Saint-Pierre, Coursodon 2009

Tasting Notes

Only made in the greatest vintages, the top cuvee is the 2009 St.-Joseph Le Paradis St.-Pierre. Tasting like La Sensonne on steroids, it is one of the greatest St.-Josephs I have ever tasted. The luscious perfume smells like a flower garden in full bloom intermixed with blackberry and black raspberry fruit with a touch of graphite. A wine of superb intensity and full-bodied power revealing stunning integration of acidity, tannin, wood and alcohol, this St.-Joseph is made like haute couture and is seamless and profound in its richness, aromatic and flavor dimensions. This is a brilliant achievement from young Jerome Coursodon. It should age magnificently for two decades or more.
