Deep dark purple with nose of dark black red fruit, dark chocolate. Very young but approachable. Silky mouth feel with balanced fruit and well integrated tannins with some acidity on the back of the palate and finish. Opened nicely after about an hour or so. Excellent Syrah which ran on the edge of over powering but held back nicely. Excellent with Filet Mignon, honey coated carrots and garlic sauteed spinach.
While not in my wheel house (Burgundy is my thing) it is a well made excellent wine worth the experience.
Had this with my wine group last night, and it was a huge hit. Probably the WOTN, although for me, it was behind the CdP that we had. Slightly peppery, and a mid weight wine. I don't drink many Northern Rhones, so I don't have much to compare it to.
Medium to full body, complex, balanced acid and tannin structure. Young with plenty of dark fruit coming in waves, silky on the palate with hints of pepper and iron. Never heard of this producer and bought on a whim Excellent
Popped and poured at a wine dinner, but by the time we got to it, it was probably open for an hour. A big hit, everyone enjoyed it. I don't drink much French Northern Rhones, so I don't have a lot to compare it to. It stood up to the spicy food that I had for dinner.
