Tasting Note:

Suave, brooding and powerful. Layered and replete with beautiful, dark sun-kissed fruit offset by deep earthy mineral qualities. Suave yet driven, quite open for Grandes Places but not losing its serious side, mystery or composure. Outstanding. Grandes Places is a fabulous single vineyard in the Verenay commune planted with 75-year-old ‘Serrine’ vines, which is the traditional Syrah of Ampuis. The soils here are poor like Viaillère but more crumbly in structure, so the roots can go deep. The resulting wine is very profound and mineral. The wine is aged for 24 months in 30% new oak and is bottled without filtration.
