92 Points, Jow Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Saint Joseph Silice outperforms its entry-level status, offering up hints of wet stone and a whirl of mixed red and black cherries. Medium to full-bodied, it's creamy and plush on the palate, firming up just enough on the long finish. It should drink well for a decade." 12/1791-93 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, www.jebdunnuck.com: "As to the 2015s, the largest production effort is the 2015 Saint Joseph Silice, a classic, elegant St Joseph that's well worth seeking out. Blackberries, leafy herbs, pepper and violet notes all flow to a medium to full-bodied, concentrated Syrah that has fine tannin and good acidity. I suspect it's going to be a seriously good value." 1/18.
"I continue to love the wines from the young Jerome Coursodon, who pulls from roughly 16 hectares of vines all in the southern part of Saint Joseph, mostly just outside the village of Mauves. The 2015s are monster, blockbuster styled efforts that I suspect won't appeal to the traditionalists out there, but are singular wines. The 2016s are more elegant and finesse-driven, yet still pack in more sweet fruit than just about everyone else out there." - Jeb Dunnuck
