"Another huge, sexy wine is the 2015 St Joseph La Source, which at this quality, sells for a song..." - 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Hailing from one of the regions top producers in Ferraton and from a vintage described as 'A vintage of a lifetime' from a legend of the Rhone in Marcel Guigal. You know you are heading in the right direction and, that is the case here. This is stunning Northern Rhone Shiraz. It's ripe, powerful, spicy and mineral. It's ready to drink now however, another 3 - 10 years in bottle will see it flourish. Lovely stuff!

    Another huge, sexy wine is the 2015 St Joseph La Source, which at this quality, sells for a song. Black raspberries, cassis, red currants, licorice and graphite all emerge from this full-bodied beauty that has sweet tannin and a stacked mid-palate. It will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and drink well for over a decade. Twenty-eight bucks? More please. The quality (and number of cuvées) from this estate continues to soar, and this is easily the finest lineup up of wines I’ve tasted from this team.
