DOMAINE LES BRUYÈRES, DAVID REYNAUD

LVT 2019 r 2018 wh A sparkling domaine on biodynamic and organic cultivation. David Reynaud has used own cuttings from 1950s Syrah to propagate young vines, even those for his IGP Syrah east of Beaumont-Monteux. He left the Co-operative in 2003, and makes accomplished, vigorously fruity wines that offer open pleasure. A fruity, modern take Cornas was added to the range in 2009 - biodynamic harvest purchased from Matthieu Barret of Domaine du Coulet. This was an eye catching ****(*) in 2018, a vigorous wine with raw energy.

The Crozes-Hermitage David Reynaud Beaumont red is from purchased organic crop, and the 2015 was **** w.o.w. wine, as was the biodynamic 2015 Crozes Georges red. The Crozes Les Croix red is highly recommended; it includes 1950s Syrah, is a serious wine, and was ****(*) in both 2015 and 2017, **** in 2016. David's IGP wines from Châteauneuf-sur-Isère, where there are clay-limestone soils that resemble Les Chassis of Crozes, are extremely good, and really extol fun, fruit-packed drinking. The 2019 Syrah was a **** w.o.w. wine, all the more impressive due to some of the vineyard being hit by hail. The ***(*) 2018 IGP Les Petites Bêtises white, 90% Marsanne, 10% Roussane, was also w.o.w.

Magnums of a jolly Syrah-Grenache are produced with fellow organic-biodynamic growers Matthieu Barret of Domaine du Coulet at Cornas and Stan Wallut of Domaine de Villeneuve at Châteauneuf-du-Pape; it is called Les Trois Barbus - the three bearded ones, and the **** 2016 was a good party wine of high appeal. David also has five hectares of apricots, cherries and plums.
