2019 Cote Rotie Syrah
An elegant, glossy wine with a palate that's dense and powerful, sewn with silken threads of strawberry, cassis and blackberry plus some graphite, minerals, spice and oak. Total harmony. The nose is all decadent dark berries – you'll want to dive into the glass. So sleek, so polished. It's 100% Syrah from a tiny 0.4 hectare block on Coteau de Tupin next to Prenelle. Three week vinification with wild yeasts, daily pump overs, cap punching, then maturation in 5 year-old 228-litre oak casks for 22 months.
