Wine of the Week: Eric and Joel Durand Saint Joseph Les Côteaux 2010

December 18th, 2013

DurandOn the right bank of the Rhône, in both A.O.C. St. Joseph and Cornas, Eric and Joel Durand have been making internationally acclaimed wines together for several years. The St. Joseph Les Côteaux 2010 is a fantastic red wine that they produce. This 100% Syrah is vibrant, and has a great balance of freshness to ripeness. With a ripe nose of red fruit, and a full fleshy mouth of black cherries, oak, lavender, cassis, blackberry and plum, the St. Joseph Les Coteaux is supported by nice concentration and rounded tannins. This wine will age well, and is best from 2013-2019. Only 1,800 cases were made.
