89/100 "The medium to full-bodied 2016 Saint Joseph La Source features aromas of espresso and baking spices. On the palate, it's tart and taut but not ungenerous, with smooth, silky tannins and a decent finish. Drink it over the next 4-5 years."

93/100 "A light honeyed edge adds intrigue to the core of apricot, yellow apple and star fruit flavors, while heather and salted butter notes fill in on the finish. Provides opulence without sacrificing freshness. Drink now through 2019."

16/20 "Simple nose and palate with black fruit and thick, mouth-coating tannin on the palate. Peppery finish. Quite a mouthful for now – leave for a few years to settle. (RH)"

Pretty complex for a plain Côtes du Rhône,...
