The 2022 Saint Joseph Blanc is another pure, focused, impeccably made white. Crushed citrus, sappy flowers, and some obvious minerality all define the aromatics, and it's medium-bodied, with a focused mouthfeel, good acidity, and outstanding length. It's a touch inward and reserved, so give bottles another year in the cellar. It's going to keep for a solid 7-8 years.
