What a good example

This is quite a fancy St. Joseph. I’m still drinking, hooray!

St. Joseph Cuvée des Anges 1999, Domaine Cheze

This has a very herbal fruit character, like cough sweets. There are ceps and earthy aromas with a very vague hint of bubblegum. But the nose is really good and complex, very expressive and interesting. Despite this style and complexity it still smells like a St. Joseph. Good. The palate has a very slightly angular structure and a prickle which is also very St. Joseph. It is still quite a serious wine, though. This is perfectly ready to drink and I will enjoy this as it develops in my glass. St. Joseph gets no better.
