The Wines

selected Syrah from Chavanay, destemmed, 2-3 week vinification, used oak cask raised 8 months, 7,200-13,500 b

2018

bright red; racy dark cherry fruit is real go-go on the nose, which has a plump centre, gives a pulsing just out of the vat stimulus, Rock On Tommy. The palate gives gliding black fruits, neat tannins, salty touches, cherry stone flavour. This has great zest and drinkability, is w.o.w. wine par excellence. There is light grain on the exit. 14°. 13,500 b. To 2023 Nov 2019

bright, quite full red robe. Gummy red fruits, reduction, wild brambly fruit show on the nose which has a raw side to it, is unbridled. The palate offers wavy red fruits, plump pockets, a good little cluster of tannin on the finish. This has character, so is ***(*). The fruit is joli, a bit coy still. 13°. €6.80 export is very fair.

dark cherry colour. Tar, rubber, stewed black fruits, broad and smoky bouquet, holds up OK. Appealing flesh on palate with a tingle of late tannin. Bonny length, has a licorice, blackberry aftertaste. Nice young, now to 2007, but can certainly live till 2010-11. September 2005
