The Wines

from 1983 Syrah at Malleval, aged 2-year and older casks 12 months, unfined, unfiltered, 1,500 b

2005 ()

this small batch was bottled after 16 months’ ageing - most was bottled Dec 2006: bright red with some black in it. Has a clear, red berry nose, is graceful but a bit reduced – so decant. The palate grips well, with good fruit clarity. Holds good, complete red fruit, the length is sound, the finish a little nutty. Good to toot now for its young fruit, that twinkles at the finale. WOW wine (what one wants). “I would drink this quite soon, to appreciate its fruit,” S.Otheguy June 2007
