Tasting

“Opaque ruby. Displays mineral-accented aromas of fresh black and blue fruits, violet and olive paste, along with a black pepper note that builds in the glass. Sweet cassis, blueberry and vanilla flavors deepen and become smokier with air. Concentrated but lively as well, closing sappy and long, with discreet tannins and lingering florality.” Josh Reynolds – Vinous. December 2022

Detailed information

Vintage

The 2020 vintage is characterized by its earliness, from the start of the vegetative cycle until the harvest. Spring turned out to be warm with temperatures constantly above normal and fairly regular rains, thus favoring rapid flowering in the second half of May and providing very good conditions for the rest of the cycle. The harvest began at the end of August and spread out over several weeks thanks to the good weather conditions. Throughout the northern vineyards, quality and quantity were there.

Grape varieties

Syrah

Terroir

Our parcel selection sources from:
– “Serine” grapes (Syrah especially selected from the most robust non-clonal vines) and classic Syrah from the South-facing granite slopes at 250m in altitude in the northern St Joseph communes of Malleval and Roche Courbe. These terroirs produce wines with delicate smoky, spicy and violet aromas as well as a refreshing livelyness.
– Syrah from complex granite-based slopes facing Southwest at 200m in altitude in the central part of the St Joseph appellation around St Jean de Muzols.
