Tasting Notes:
From Cote Rozier, this is quite intense at present (2017), bold black fruit character dominating with good pepperiness and plenty of structure. One to hold.
Drinking Dates:
2022 to 2030+
Cépagement:
100% Syrah
Upbringing:
Handpicked harvest, sorting of the healthy and well-ripened grapes. Total de-stemming. Cold maceration before fermentation. Alcoholic fermentation at 35°C. Maceration after fermentation at 30°C. Malolactic fermentation in barrels.

Aged 18 months in new oak from Allier and Nevers. Barrels 50% new with oxygen added every 4 months.

Critic Reviews:
"Cask sample. Tasted blind. Blackish crimson. Warm, ripe nose suggests ripe blackberries and spice. Dusty, sweet finish. Pretty hefty with an edge of acidity." 16.5/20 (Jancis Robinson MW)

You must be aged 18 or over to purchase wine.
