Domaine Faury St Joseph Rouge Hedonism 2018
|Grapes||Syrah / Shiraz|
domaine to the top of the first division of growers and super value in both reds
and whites.This part of Saint-Joseph, with its steep hillsides is a challenging
terrain, but the south-southeast exposure and granite soil have given this 100%
Syrah from 10-35 year old vines, its signature peppery, spicy, olive and herb
Lionel Faury's red Hedonism is wonderful on the nose, fresh and lively with
plenty of red berry and fine tannins - charming and moreish.
"Opaque ruby. Intensely perfumed aromas of ripe red and dark berries, violet and
smoky minerals, accompanied by a hint of olive that sneaks up with air. Sappy
and focused on the palate, offering lively, spice-tinged black raspberry and
bitter cherry flavors that turn sweeter through the midpalate. Finishes quite
long, with lingering sweetness, very good clarity and gentle tannic grip."
92/100, Josh Raynolds, Vinous
