The Wines

100% Syrah (2014) from 0.7 hectare on loose granite soils on Les Replats at Serrières, 90% destemmed, 3 week vinification at 25°-30°C, wild yeasts, daily pumping over, 1-2 part vat emptying/refillings, raised 10-year 600-litre oak casks 12 months, unfined, filtered, “a wine to drink quite rapidly”, 1,800 b


shiny dark red; the bouquet is based on intensity, has a forward aroma of black fruits, clear black Morello cherry, has space in it, which is good. The palate serves a smooth run of black cherry fruit with notes of cherry stone, coulis of fruit, a fluid sweetness. It ends tarrily, darkly – the finish could be less forceful. 12.5°. 2024-25 Feb 2020
