La Joie

2010

Vintage

The 2010 vintage was a long season for ripening after a beautiful flowering. This vintage will live for a long time — yet this racy, powerful, elegant wine can also be appreciated young. This vintage is a great example of what Sonoma can do with a diversity of soils and a grandiose climate. Harvest took place September 25th through October 16th.
– Pierre Seillan, Vigneron

Notes

A beautiful wine with intense color and a red crown along the edges, the 2010 La Joie reveals a silky, soft and voluptuously fruity nose with a touch of discreet oak and fine spices. It opens with an opulent palate of red and black fruits, spices and licorice before giving way to an impressively long finish. This is a wine with very fine tannins; a wine of balance between fruit and minerality. While it can be enjoyed young this wine will age at least 20 years.

Copious aromas of incense, unsmoked cigar tobacco, Christmas fruitcake, cedar, underbrush, blackcurrants and a hint of espresso roast emerge from this medium to full-bodied, rich, concentrated red. It needs 4-5 years of cellaring and should keep well for 2 to 3 decades.
