2009 Domaine Faury St Joseph “la Gloriette”

A handy little item from the postage stamp collection that is Eurocentric’s portfolio – Shiraz Viognier in this instance. Faury

It shows its varietal straight away, in the white pepper and viognier apricot tones, which inflect as an airy, lifted spicy sensation.  Tarry liqueur cherry fruit, perhaps a touch more wood than I’d like but it is of the nicer kind.  Cuddly spicy warm finish of decent length despite only 13% alcohol.  Nice with kangaroo sausages.  89/100

    Well there you go. Still very nice with the sausages 😉

    Looking at this again 2 years further on, and it has evolved. Tarry fruit has blossomed to juicy black cherry, pepper and spice (STILL smells and tastes like there is a spoonful of viognier in this) has added some funk. Amply middle weight. nice rub of tannin. Really nice in fact. 90 BCP now.
