Bernard Faurie Saint Joseph 2005

89+ points

Gosh this is still a baby. Very fresh almost floral. This is a wine of pristine fruit not oak flavour or influence. I don’t like the really overt florality it shows at the moment (Viogner?) best left until 2013 at the earliest.

2012 April UPDATE – medium bodied but tannic, with youthful acid still.  Quite serious stuff.

  1. Yeah m8, I agree.

    I opened a bottle and decanted it 3 hours prior to drinking and this little minx doesn’t even have grass her pitch yet.

    Still nice to warm up with after a chilly surf though…

    I look forward to seeing her when she grows up a little.
