Last Call – Pierre et Jerome Coursodon St Josephs

Pierre et Jerome Coursodon, St. Joseph Silice 2011

90 points – Vinous
“Opaque ruby. Dark berry preserves, licorice and cracked pepper on the highly perfumed nose and in the mouth. Sappy, penetrating and appealingly sweet, with slow-building tannins adding definition to the finish. Jerome told me that although this wine will be enjoyable soon after release, “it has more than enough fruit to let it age well.””- Josh Raynolds, Vinous

“A sanguine, racy style, with a core of red currant, damson plum and bitter cherry fruit, lined with singed mesquite and iron notes. A sanguine accent echoes throughout. 3,500 cases made.” — JM, Wine Spectator

Pierre et Jerome Coursodon, St. Joseph Olivaie 2011

91 points – Vinous
“Bright ruby. Fresh blackberry and floral scents are complemented by deeper-pitched notes of dark chocolate and licorice. Supple and open-knit, offering gently sweet black raspberry and cherry flavors that become spicier with aeration. Closes tangy and quite long, with sneaky tannins adding grip.”- Josh Raynolds, Vinous

“A nicely toasty style, offering dark anise and mocha notes, with ample fleshy blackberry and black currant fruit, energetic acidity and lively bay leaf and tobacco accents for range and balance. 680 cases made.” — JM, Wine Spectator
