95 POINTS: VINOUS - The style of Saint-Josephs at Domaine Coursodon ranges widely across bottlings, from the vibrant, up-front and fruit-driven Silice to the often lavishly oaked and age-worthy La Sensonne. Relative to his peers, Jérome Coursodon bottles on the early side because he thinks it preserves freshness and helps ensure the wines’ age-worthiness. I can vouch that bottles with ten to fifteen years of age on them drink exceedingly well, so it's hard to fault his logic and practices. Inky magenta. Heady aromas of fresh black and blue fruits, incense, exotic spices, violet and olive paste. Densely packed and energetic on the palate, offering intense dark berry preserve, cherry-cola, floral pastille and salty olive flavors, plus a hint of minerality and building spiciness. Finishes subtly chewy, focused and impressively long, with well-knit tannins adding grip to echoing dark fruit and floral notes.

The Coursodon family has true roots farming the granite in and around Mauves back to the mid 1800's and Jerome's grandfather Gustav was one of the leaders of Domaine bottling and organizing the St. Joseph appellation in the 1950's. In 1968, the appellation expanded from the original six communes to twenty communes, stretching from Condrieu to Cornas, growing the appellation from the original 97 hectares around Mauves to its current size of 1200 hectares. The new communes did not share the steep granitic slopes that made up the original six villages, instead consisting of a variety of soil types and inclines. From their prized vineyards, all on the granite slopes in and around Mauves, the Coursodons produce wines of incredible complexity, depth, minerality, and age-ability that can compete with the best from Hermitage, Côte-Rôtie, and Cornas.
