a slightly fuller, more substantial feel than the 2011. Cassis, black fruits, dark chocolate and lots of minerality all emerge from this full-bodied, concentrated 2012. It still has some oak to integrate, so give it a few years in the cellar."

VINOUS MEDIA 91 POINTS: "Bright violet color. Strongly perfumed aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, incense and smoky minerals. Seamless and sweet on the palate, offering energetic dark berry liqueur, licorice and cola flavors and a touch of star anise on the back half. Finishes broad and long, with building tannins and alluring sweetness. I like the blend of power and finesse here quite a bit." -- Josh Raynolds

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. Rich, textured and full-bodied, it oozes notions of caramelized peaches, toast, cream and brioche. It’s knockout stuff and should drink nicely for over a decade (although I’d drink it over the coming couple of years)."

eROBERT PARKER 94 POINTS: "One of the top whites in the appellation, Guigal’s 2013 Saint Joseph Lieu Dit Saint Joseph Blanc comes from the pure granite Read More...
soils of the namesake vineyard of the appellation and is a blend of 93% Marsanne and 7% Roussanne. It was aged in slightly less new oak in 2013 (prior vintages saw 100% new) with the goal to make it more approachable on release. Now aged 12 months in two-thirds new and one-third 2-year-old barrels, it sports a medium-gold color to go with sensational notes of crème brulee, caramelized peach, toast and almond paste, with additional minerality emerging on the palate. Full-bodied, rich and textured, it's a serious Saint Joseph Blanc that will stand toe-to-toe with some top white Hermitage. Drink it over the coming decade or more."

VINOUS MEDIA 91-92 POINTS: "(two-thirds new oak this year, whereas previous vintages usually got all new barrels): Bright yellow-gold. Ripe melon, pear and nectarine on the nose, with suave floral and honey qualities building with air. Fleshy, dry and mineral-driven, offering intense pit fruit and citrus pith flavors that flesh out and deepen with air. Shows excellent clarity and power on the clinging finish, which features notes of chamomile, candied ginger and chalky minerals. This wine, which was bottled on November 1, 2014, sold through in under two weeks, according to Guigal." -- Josh Raynolds
