One of my new producers in the Rhône. What a nose. Essence of Syrah. Grapey, tweed jacket, so earthy and mineral with huge blackberry and raspberry fruit. Even cassis. Loads of spice. Soaring nose. Palate is super supple, with loads of game, fresh pepper and blackberry fruit. Suave tannins and devastating purity. Amazing velvety tannins and such feral and gamey depth. Lovely freshness. Good structure and will age effortlessly for 10 years.

This is currently closed and rigid, but it's a very special wine in the making. Incredibly aromatic; very pointed, detailed and precise on the nose. Quite feral and mineral on the palate at the moment, earthy and structured, but there's so much concentration and intensity underneath. I can't wait to check in in 5 years. Love this producer, long time cellar master for Durand brothers.
