Pierre Amadieu Saint-Joseph ‘les capelets’ 2005

87 points

St Joseph, Rhone. 12.5%

Smokey gamey aromas – attractive, not over-the-top.

Palate is a slight surprise then. Clean red fruits sort of Syrah. Not very concentrated.

Warm and ripe as it should be with nice cleansing acid and a touch of tannin.

Nice wine. Good cafe drinking. Over priced (in Australia at least).

Drink now and to 2013.
