I feel like the "value" Rhône wines perform better than almost any other wines of the same category from other regions. This is great, classic N. Rhône character on a moderate frame. At first funk, red plums, wild berries and violets filled the glass, evolving into grilled bacon, beef blood, black licorice, and peppery olive character. While it doesn't have the density nor weight of some Syrah it still is lovely and engaging to drink.

OMG! Lovely nose, cocoa dust, juicy blackberries, tobacco, spice and oak. Have to let it open up a bit longer! Deb and I spent a few hours tasting barrels with Stephane in Ampuis in 2011. What an amazing experience!

Une bonne Syrah sur des fruits noirs, avec un début d'arôme secondaires, le tout très équilibré. Super rapport qualité prix!
