The Wines

100% Syrah from Gervans (northern, granite sector), some whole bunch 3 week fermentation, pumped over, aged young 228-litre oak casks 12-15 months, unfiltered, for Kermit Lynch, California, 1,800 b


rather dark red; has a mineral-flecked, smoky aroma hovering outside a blackberry fruit depth, also grilled bacon. The attack is careful, then it takes on a more rich, instant delivery of fruit, the length strong, sustained. It shows rounded red berry fruit at the end. Pretty classic Crozes with pockets of gras, is an open book. There are smoky notes on the finale. 13°. From 2014. 2020-21  Dec 2012

2009 ()

good red robe; the nose reflects the warmth of the year, a sunny wine with smoky cut, black olive or tapenade and herbs infused into its berry fruits. The palate bears oily, suave black fruits, has a good style about it. Attractive, charming, interesting wine. To 2019 July 2011
