The 2015 Durand, Les Coteaux, Saint-Joseph will develop well


Good values continue to be found from the 2015 vintage in Saint-Joseph.  The 2015 Domaine Durand, Les Coteaux, Saint-Joseph combines nothing but desirable elements: juicy fruit, fat, stones, and stuffing for development.  While appealing now it will be even better in a couple of years.  You should grab several of these bottles from MacArthur Beverages.

2015 Domaine Durand, Les Coteaux, Saint-Joseph – $25
Imported by Fruit of the Vine.  This wine is 100% Syrah sourced from 15-25 year old vines on granite hills which is matured for 12 months in both cement vats and barrels.  Alcohol 14%.  This is a focused yet round wine with baby fat, hints of smoke, and a juicy berry core.  Salivating acidity drives the flavors into the finish of minerals and stones which are matched by lifted flavors of black fruit.  Overall this is an appealing, slightly savory wine with the structure and stuffing for some development.  ***(*) Now – 2028.
