Tasting Note:

Serious and powerful but noble. Sinewy dark and red berry fruits with a fresh spiciness and smoky coal dust touches. A sapid and mineral quality adds life to the rich, layered fruit. There is a solid backbone to this, too; it promises to make old bones! A blend of 70-year-old Syrah vines in the commune of Chavanay in the north part of St Joseph near Condrieu. Made from 85% de-stalked Syrah (15% whole bunches were included in the 2017 for the first time) and aged in 20% new oak barriques usually for 16 to 18 months.
