‘More elegant, the 2019 Saint Joseph Le Clos has an incredibly granite nose of cassis, leather, ground pepper, and powdered rock. Tasting like a Hermitage from Bessards, it’s medium to full-bodied, has remarkable purity, fine tannins, and a seamless mouthfeel. I suspect the acidity is quite low, but this has a great sense of freshness as well as length.’ – Jeb Dunnuck, 96/100

‘This dense, muscular wine shows a stunning, tightly coiled mélange of blackberry confit, red currant and earth punctuated by white pepper and charred alder. Reveals notes of clove and crushed herbs with time in glass, but this needs years before it fully expresses its full potential. 2025 - 2035.’ – Kristen Bieler, Wine Spectator, 95/100

‘From east-facing vines that were planted at the end of the 1990s, Chapoutier's 2019 Saint-Joseph Le Clos offers up scents of crushed stone, blackberries, cassis and hints of scorched coffee. Full-bodied, concentrated and rich, it's dense, creamy textured and plush on the mid-palate, finishing long and velvety. I suspect I may be underestimating it. 2023 - 2035’ – Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate, 94+/100

‘Tasted at the domaine. Such a powerful brooding nose with a note of bacon fat and scorched earth. Austere attack with lots of peppery spice and good freshness. But this is a powerful wine that needs at least five years to settle. 2023-2032’ – Alistair Cooper MW, JancisRobinson.com, 16.5/20
