The Wines

100% Syrah, vat raised, merchant wine from Brunel Père et Fils


dark red. There is a tidy roundness on the berry fruit on the nose. The palate has a savoury aspect, prolongs with a little ball of dark fruit, some tar present. This is a Steady Operator Crozes, which drinks OK now. It has some southern zone, black olives, authenticity. 13°. To 2020  Apr 2016

full robe; menthol, licorice flash on the nose, which bears a bubbling, spiced red berry fruit intensity. It has a sober palate, where the fruit is compressed, so decant this. There is a pocket of late acidity that peps it up. Good south zone Crozes typicity in it. It is just easing into its stride. Has sound length. 2017-18 May 2012
