ST JOSEPH 09 HOSPICE GUIGAL
GUIGAL 2009 ST JOSEPH VIGNE DES HOSPICES
Item: #322909

ROBERT PARKER 95-97 POINTS - "The outrageous, inky/purple-hued 2009 St.-Joseph Vignes de l’Hospice boasts scents of roast beef, bacon fat, black currants, blackberries, camphor, Read More...
licorice and subtle smoke along with great intensity, a full-bodied mouthfeel and a fantastic finish. It will be drinkable early in life and keep for two decades."

This wine originates from a monopoly of the best terroirs adjoining what were previously the Jean-Louis Grippat and Vallouit estates. This is a unique expression of the best situated slopes of the Saint-Joseph appellation. And when it comes to the winemaking: "...no one in the wine world is better at ‘raising’ a wine (or as the French call it elevage) than Marcel Guigal, who learned the skills from his father, Etienne. Because everyone tends to focus on vintage conditions and terroir, the importance of a wine’s elevage is often overlooked, but Guigal’s unusually long tank, foudre and small barrel aging regime for all his red wines as well as several of his whites results in an array of remarkable wines time and time again." - Robert Parker

and bitter cherry core. A tobacco and iron streak courses through the finish. Delivers an old-school feel. Best from 2014 through 2022. "–JM

ROBERT PARKER 87-89 POINTS: "The 2010 St.-Joseph displays the wet granite, stony character one expects in these wines in addition to abundant fruit (cassis and black cherries). Ripe and medium to full-bodied, this impressive wine comes from hillside vineyards situated between Mauves (the home of the great winemaking family of Jean-Louis Chave) and slightly further north above Tournon."

spring flowers and crushed rock in a full-bodied, intense, deep, textured style. Undeniable minerality, good acidity and a slightly more structured mouthfeel suggest it will need several years of bottle age after its release next year; it should keep for two decades."

Along the steep, narrow valley that traces the northern Rhône, the appellations of Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu and Saint-Joseph take their place among the great wines of France, and Domaine Read More...
Faury is one of the region’s most artisanal producers. When Philippe Faury took over the domaine in 1979, the family was selling wine, peaches and cherries, and the bulk of their clientele was local. Over the years, Philippe expanded their holdings to over eleven hectares, and expanded sales to an international client base. In addition, he has shared his savoir faire with his son, Lionel. Since 2006, Lionel has taken over the reins at Domaine Faury, though father and son still work side by side.


The steep slopes of the northern Rhône present a challenging terrain where farming is only feasible through terracing. On these terraced slopes, the Faurys’ vines take full advantage of the southern and southeastern sun exposure, benefitting from optimum ripening. A combination of the predominately granitic soil, partial de-stemming (in about 70% of the grapes), soft crushing of the grapes with a pneumatic press, and temperature controlled fermentation offer a liveliness and freshness that one does not often find in wines from the northern Rhône. There’s a real attention to detail here, and nothing is done in haste. Every method used encourages the grape towards greatness with the ultimate respect for its fragility. Pigeage, the punching of the cap, is not carried out with tools, but gently by foot – not just poetic but also pragmatic. Unlike many other vignerons in the region, the Faurys have a strong aversion to new oak. Though the reds definitely see time in barrels, there is a rotation between new and old alike, along with a variety of sizes, ranging from the smaller barriques to the larger 600-liter demi-muids. Unfined and only lightly filtered before bottling, these wines are loaded with classic flavors and show a remarkable rustic elegance.

its name, is a smoking blend of 93% Marsanne and 7% Roussanne that’s brought up all in new oak barrels.

Produced from old vines of more than 40 years of age, this wine is based on Grenache (60%) supplemented by Cinsault, Carignan and Clairette.
