"Brilliant violet color. Lively, mineral-tinged aromas of fresh cherry and dark berries, smoky minerals and violet. Smooth, sappy and energetic in the mouth, offering gently sweet black raspberry, floral pastille and allspice flavors and a zesty touch of cracked pepper. Shows very good clarity and spicy cut on the floral-tinged finish, which is framed by gentle, harmonious tannins." -Josh Raynold
"The charming, supple 2016 Saint Joseph Silice was scheduled to be bottled the week after my visit. It shows attractive floral aromas, lush black cherry fruit, ample weight on the palate and a creamy mouthfeel. It should drink well on release and go for at least 5 years. Young Jerôme Coursodon now farms 16 hectares in Saint Joseph, centered around Mauves, just outside Tournon. He considers the 2016s more approachable than the dense 2015s, noting that it was an excellent vintage for whites, which are growing in popularity." -Joe Czerwinski
"Creamy, concentrated flavors of orange parfait and yellow peach are accented by crisp mineral tones and perfumed apple blossoms in this wine. Made from 100% Marsanne, it’s rich and rounded but maintains a sunny brightness throughout. Enjoy now–2023."
