Rhône Syrah

M. Chapoutier

Monier de La Sizeranne Hermitage Syrah

History of Chapoutier family dates back to the early 19th century when current owner Michel Chapoutier’s great-, great-, great-grandfather Marius purchased estate & famous l’Hermitage vineyards. Medium Ruby with aromas of rich red/black fruits and spice. On the palate raspberry, cherry & black currant flavors with notes of oak. Firm tannins, well balanced ending with fruit, spice and cedar. Very nice! Tasting Sample. Has lots of room to bottle evolve. — 9 days ago

Delectable thinks this is a “Viognier blend”? Huh.

@Delectable Wine the Sizeranne is made from Syrah. 🙂

La Pierrelle Hermitage Syrah 2015

Brief notes on this.

Pretty wine, deep red fruits. Don't get as much of the peppery or bacony notes, they might have been obscured by the herbed stuffed bacon wrapped chicken pairing 😉

Sainte-Épine Saint-Joseph Syrah 2016

This needed air to really reveal itself. I should have decanted. I waited a day to try again and was rewarded. Complex and beautiful. Cured meats, black fruit, spice, licorice, limestone, plus a finish that just lingers. I am guessing this will improve with a couple more years of age. — 16 days ago

Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2018

Nice wine especially for the price. Dark and brooding in the glass. One of the more Syrah-y syrahs that we have had. Green olive on the nose. Deep black fruits. Tannins are unresolved - not surprising given the age. But the acid is there in a great way, and holds this together. One to try in several years - too young now. — 11 days ago

Hoisin sauce, so so so sick. Just why we drink wine. Leather. Just so so good. Hard to write a note as it’s so profound. Palate is perfect. Stunningly balanced. Root beer, ginger tertiary flavors. Just a wine is at double peak. Still has a youthful tang. Perfection. — 14 days ago

La Ferme des Sept Lunes Syrah 2020

Early greedy syrah. Superbe mesmerising nose made of floral fragrances, violette flower forward, touch of pepper. A primeur wine full of charm.

Syrah primeur, gourmande. Superbe nez enivrant sur des fragrances florales violette en avant, touche poivrée. Vin primeur plein de charme.

Cornas Syrah 2017

Blue flower perfume. Anise seed. Dusty minerality, granitic. Delicate tannins within a supremely long, tart, palate of purple raspberries. Elegant and juicy body and finish, with a firm mineral spine. Fantastic. Such elegant wine. Subtle and pretty. Nice perception of sweetness. Will only get better. — 17 days ago

Fructus Voluptas Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2015

Lovely syrah. Dark fruit. A bit of funk. Best with food - in this case some grilled short ribs in a soy-balsamic marinade. Decanted 3 hours. — 10 days ago

Vieilles Vignes Saint Joseph Syrah 2018

2018 vintage. Huge black and white pepper components with plenty of body to back them up. Lip-smacking if you like that kind of thing. — 11 days ago
