Don’t be sleeping in the Northern Rhone Valley. What a nose! How to be fresh, whilst maintaining a richness about you, bring your notepad and write it down! Mocha, violets and pepper. Reminds you of the streaming colours of the momeraths in Alice in Wonderland. Very tasty and full-bodied, but the acid and perfume keep the harmony. Feels like being on a great date in a dark bar. In 2004, at the age of 28, Natacha Chave started her own domain. Because that’s what aspiring 28 year old vignerons do! 1.3 hectares of vines among the hilly fertile soils of Saint-Joseph in Northern Rhône, all to herself. Just three years later, in 2007, she grew her domain, purchasing another 6.5 hectares of old vines in the Crozes-Hermitage appellation, where she added some new plantings as well. She believes the perfect expression of her favourite grape Syrah can be found only here, and well, the wines speak for themselves. VARIETY: Syrah REGION: Northern Rhône, France
