The Wines

1979-83 Syrah on Chauramond at St Michel-sur-Rhône (granite, some clay), 3 week vinification, pumping overs, aged 4-5 year 228-litre oak casks 12 months, fined, unfiltered, 1,200 b


bright, plum red. Has a black pepper, red pepper lead on the bouquet – very northern zone St-Joseph style aroma. The palate holds pretty black fruit that is tasty – the fruit is formidable on this. A really good early wine on the palate – indeed I prefer the palate to the nose. 2011-12 Dec 2008
