  • from Syrah planted in 2000 and 2005 in 50% muscovite granite and 50% biotite granite soils from Richagnieux & Les Gardes at Chavanay
  • the two plots are vinified apart, ambient yeasts, destemmed, pumping overs, a little cap punching
  • Steel vat fermented at a cool 20°C to preserve aromatics
  • Raised 6 months in concrete
  • Certified biodynamic and organic
My Take: Sappy, crunchy, juicy red raspberry, blackberry, and cherry, with a line of smoke and spice that adds nice complexity.  Like eating a bowl of fresh berry fruit in a room where they are smoking wood and toasting spices.

John Livingstone Learmonth: ***(*)
quite dark red; appealing red berry fruit features on the nose, a spicy raspberry coulis the main imprint – it gives a good first impression. The palate serves floral-infused red berry fruits, raspberry with sweet-noted cooked plum. It grips with tar towards the finish, holds a squeezy and bonny gras, and light crunch tannins. This has character, is authentic. Bottled April 2018.
