This is 75% Syrah, 25% Viognier. Syrah from vines planted on rolled pebbles and silt from the banks of the Rhône in Saint Marcel d’Ardèche. Viognier from clay-limestone, marls in Valvignères
The grapes were co-fermented for 6 days with a regular draining of the juice and this cuvee comes from the the assembly of the start of the press raised in a fiberglass tank
and the end of the press raised in 500l old oak barrels.
It's a lovely expression of Syrah, the concentrated dark fruit balanced by a hint of peachy Viognier and an almost weightless texture. Rare to get Syrah so elegant.
