The territory of the IGP Collines Rhodanienne covers around 670 hectares in the northern Rhône region and is spread over a large area reaching from just north of the town of Vienne to over 100km south along the Rhône River. The zone is equally divided east and west of the Rhône. The soils are mostly limestone-rich and fractured granite and the Syrah from this regional appellation produces excellent value wines.
Traditional winemaking in vats : pumping over, rack-and-return and maceration.
"Coming from the Northern Rhône, the 2019 Syrah Saint-Blandine has a pretty bouquet of ripe blueberries and black raspberries intermixed with plenty of peppery herbs and violets. Medium to full-bodied, with plenty of fruit and a ripe, opulent style, this smoking 2019 Syrah will offer pleasure over the coming 7-8 years." Jeb Dunnuck, october 2020

Open it one hour before tasting.
It pairs nicely with a Lyonnaise-style Onion Soup and grilled saussages.
