The Wines

100% Syrah (1900-05) from 0.6 hectare granite soils on Monerone at 250-260 metres at Saint Jean de Muzols, declassified Saint-Joseph vines, rented vineyard (since 2012) worked by horse, most destemmed, 12 day vinification, wild yeasts, brief pumping overs, raised 5-6 year 400-litre oak casks 9 months, unfined, filtered, 3,000-5,000 b


dark, bright robe; the bouquet is open, expressive, offers immediate blackberry fruits with an inviting note of sweetness. It conforms well to the vintage profile of early, easy fruit. The palate is tasty, runs with elegant dark berry fruits, cassis and blueberry, drinks well, is w.o.w. wine that will be great in a bistrot or with grills. The fruit is really entertaining, and there are mild tannins that bring a little darkness and control to the finish. There’s a note of oak-caramel on the aftertaste. 13.5°. To 2022 Dec 2019
