Pretty much perfect Syrah. Gorgeous, layered, delicious hint of funk, pure.

Will probably never come across this wine again and that thought made me a bit wistful as I tried to somehow conjure just one more sip from my pour...just stupendously good, simply in another register from any other Grenache-based wine I've ever tasted

91 Fonsalette Syrah - best Fonsalette I've had. The most technically sound, will age well from here still. Only drawback lacking some of the dirt I enjoy. That drawback could be a plus to many.
