Saint Joseph Reflet François Villard 2017


This wine shows intense dark purple color with violet hue. You can perceive black berries aromas (blackcurrant, black berry and cherry) followed by violet flower and belle pepper notes; hints of tobacco and leather show up at the end adding complexity to this cuvée. The wine is rich, intense and yet elegant in the mouth: you can taste juicy black berries flavors as from the nose, some herbal flavor such as mint and thyme, and a splash of black pepper spice with a hint of violet purple flower. The tannins are polished, you can sense their presence on the tip of your tongue rounding elegantly: a well made, fine and complex wine.
