Still one of the best value wines in the game. Vibrant mix of red and black berries with a hint of pepper.

Open and grapey on first whiff, with loads of white pepper, flowers and olive. Rides the line between savory and well-fruited (though no mistaking it for California). Firm structure and intensely mineral. This wine overperforms young, and I’ve never had them old.

Gonon's spinning some seriously unreal Syrah! Youthful, but showing so much after a quick 30 minute decant. Lively dark berries, olive tapenade, lavender, meat, herbs, black pepper, anise, mushroom. Dense, owing to the vintage, with grainy tannins and a remarkably solid acid drive. I could drink a lot of this wine 😍

Note (from CWS): While still considered within the Saint Joseph appellation, the brothers choose to bottle this younger vine syrah separately from their flagship cuvée because the vineyard location on flatland close to the bank of the Rhône does not possess the same granite base as is typical of their more historic hillside sites. Vinified with about 80% of fruit de-stemmed and undergoing a shorter elevage of 12-14 months in 600 Litre demi-muids casks.
