Critic Reviews
92 points, Vinous
“Bright violet. Expressive black and blue fruit, floral and baking spice aromas pick up a bright mineral quality and a suggestion of woodsmoke with air. Intense blackberry and bitter cherry flavors show excellent clarity and spicy lift, and a violet pastille flourish adds building sweetness. Delivers a solid punch of dark fruit flavor and comes off surprisingly lithe, with smooth closing tannins and a sneaky, lingering mineral note.”

“A sleek, pure style, with a beam of cherry and raspberry preserves running through, supported gently by sandalwood, rooibos tea and tobacco nuances. Fresh acidity drives the finish, adding cut and length. Drink now through 2028.”

“Sourced from the hillsides around Tournon, the 2016 Saint Joseph Domaine les Alexandrins features attractive notions of violets, mocha and loam. Full-bodied and supple, the flavors of cola and dark-skinned plum remain bright and vibrant on the finish. It should drink well for 6-7 years.”

“Coming from vineyards around Tournon in the southern part of the appellation, the 2016 Saint Joseph reveals a ruby/purple color as well as attractive notes of blackberries, peppery herbs, and earth. It’s medium-bodied, has solid overall balance, plenty of tannins, and the charming, classic style of the vintage front and center. While good, it’s a solid step back from the 2015.”
About The Winery
Maison & Domaines Les Alexandrins is the story of three friends combining the savoir-faire they learned from their parents and grandparents and the fruits from beautiful and historic terroirs. Nicolas Jaboulet, the 6th generation of a winegrowing family in Tain l'Hermitage, Guillaume Sorrel, son of Marc Sorrel of Domaine Sorrel in Hermitage, and Alexandre Caso, a specialist in the terroirs of the Northern Rhône, joined forces in 2012. They began working parcel by parcel in Crozes-Hermitage for the wines of Maison Nicolas Perrin. In 2015, the name was changed to Maison & Domaines Les Alexandrins. Today, Maison & Domaines Les Alexandrins produces Northern Rhône wines that are true and classic expressions of the Northern Rhône.
