2010 Domaine Jean-Claude Marsanne St. Joseph

2010 Domaine Jean-Claude Marsanne St. Joseph. First #wine from @grapeylyle that I don’t love outright. The fruit is awesome, as is the structure, but the nose is loaded with vanilla and the palate shows char and smoke, which all seems like the effects of too much oak. I have hope that this will integrate, and I have 2 more to try. But the oak is a concern for me with this one.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
