The Wines

100% Syrah (1990s) from 0.4 hectare on gneiss soils on Coteau de Tupin next to Prenelle but lower down the hill, used to be worked by J-M Stéphan, 67% destemmed, 3 week vinification, wild yeasts, daily pumping overs, cap punching, aged used 228-litre % 300-litre oak casks 22 months, unfined, 33% filtered, first wine 2019


(228-litre cask) dark red, purple tints; fruit density on the nose, raspberry, has a sunswept style across the glass, hints of graphite. The palate flows attractively and widely, holds bright red fruits, is good and consistent throughout, ends with layering and rounded tannins, the oak largely inside. There is blood-iron on the second half. This has promise. “The harvest was very belle,” Isabelle Guiller. From 2022. 2037-39 Dec 2019
