Winemaker's Notes

100% Syrah from a 40-year old, high density vineyard in Cote Rotie.

Critical Acclaim

"Gorgeous aromas of Turkish coffee, warm fig bread and dark cocoa lead the way for a lushly layered palate of fig, boysenberry and black currant paste notes. Very alluring, with ample structure buried on the finish. Don't overlook the reds at this Condrieu-based domaine; they've really improved in the last few vintages. Best from 2010 through 2025. 415 cases made."
