Pungent nose has a bit of barnyard and bigly tangy berry fruit. Some high-toned crumbly rock too. Lively and vigorous in the mouth, with the tangy element and crisp acids dominant. Nice with a garlicky grilled chicken warm pasta salad.

Fleshy, a denser and slightly muscular wine, you can taste the warmth of 2017, it lacks a little definition. A curious expression as always with this Gamay bottling. Muddled wild red fruit, cured meat, black pepper, wilted violets, smashed herbs. VA pokes out a touch. Elevated CO2 adds some prickle, with air it was hardly noticeable. Curious what 6-12mo in bottle will do. Day 2: some air has really helped out. More in line with the style of Souhaut’s gamay. More clarity and definition, perfumed has arrived. Still warm and joli, I quite like its open-knit structure.

I like a bit of brett but this had WAY too much. It covered up all the other flavors.

It’s a bit unusual in the land of Syrah. But this estate is home to a little patch of old vine Gamay which does very nice things in the bottle. The wine has the bright, vibrant red fruits typical of the Gamay grape. But on the finish, there’s a kick of black pepper more typical of the Rhone Valley. It makes for an appealing combination. It’s complex, a little geeky, and highly drinkable – a mix that we find pretty irresistible.

After decanting this wine was all bright fruit and stony acidity. Fantastic!

Natural / slight Brett but the fruit on the palate is lifted and intense long finish .
