Northern Rhône Syrah made like Beaujolais (lighter extraction, carbonic maceration). Juicy and high toned with good high toned. Graceful. 11.5% abv. A nice entry to Hervé Souhaut, but I am partial to their Gamay for its darker pitch and depth. — 2 days ago
Good fruit, not sour, with admirable zest and funk. — 2 days ago
Demand is high for these wines, prices are ratcheting in some markets, and grape sources may be expanding (this used to be a DOCG Cerasuolo). The amphorae aging brings interesting tertiary flavors and strips some vitality in the process, and when the grapes aren’t sufficiently concentrated, maybe too much is stripped. — 2 days ago
