Great value, under-priced, classic 100% syrah from Crozes-Hermitage. If you like coolish climate syrah with pepper,...

Great expression of the northern Rhone. Classic peppery, smoky nose with a bit of meat. I recently visited a few Domaines in Cote-Rotie, Condrieu, and Hermitage, and I was extremely pleased with this bottle. Wasn't expecting such a similar tasting experience at this price. Highly recommended!

Very powerful for the price, this hits with dark fruits, oak and a pleasant minerality. To test any kind of depth of flavour at this price point is quite astonishing. This would pair very well with red meat and pasta dishes.

A solid value, this 100% Syrah from the northern Rhône is thin on the palate, with bland wood leading to some bitterness on the finish, but the nose is quite good with characteristic notes of black pepper (loads and loads of it) and cured/smoked meat at the core surrounded by blackberry, violet, and licorice, with a certain lactic thickness provided by notes of heavy cream and marshmallow. More savoury than fruity, it's dry yet easygoing and drinking very well even so young (if given time to open up), with soft tannins and enough acidity to balance the savouriness, particularly with food.
