Winemaker's Notes:

"A reliable offering in many vintages, this cuvee, selected by the American importer and bottled unfiltered, emerges from a well-run cooperative south of Avignon. The dense ruby/purple-colored 2000 offers a sweet perfume of jammy cassis and licorice. Supple, fleshy, full-bodied, and loaded with fat and fruit, it will drink well for 3-4 years, although bottles of the 1995 in my cellar are holding up beautifully." -Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

About Domaine d'Andezon:

In 1994 Eric Solomon visited the Vignerons d’Estézargues and met a young, passionate director/winemaker named Jean-François Nicq. By the end of the day, he & Jean-François had decided on a custom bottling of old vine syrah from one of their best parcels, Andezon. This opaque-black, blockbuster Syrah could have been a top Northern Rhone wine, á la Cornas. What a find! Previously sold in bulk (vinous suicide) to a very famous producer in the Rhone Valley, Eric jumped at the opportunity and over a decade later it remains one of the core items in the Eric Solomon portfolio.
