Wine Advocate
Reminiscent of the 2010, yet more detailed and focused, the 2005 Saint Joseph Vignes des Hospice boasts fabulous creme de cassis, blackberry, licorice, burning ember and smoke to go with a full-bodied, serious, backward, concentrated and thrillingly structured profile. The purity, balance and overall class here is off-the-charts. In need of another 2-3 years to start to round into form, it will see its 25th birthday in fine form.

Wine Spectator
hows a modern kiss of toast up front, but it quickly melds into the fleshy currant, fig and hoisin sauce notes, which are followed by cocoa and violet. The nicely rounded finish shows superb length and balance. Best from 2009 through 2014. 800 cases made.
