"A juicy, flattering style, with lively plum sauce, blackberry paste and pastis notes wrapped with singed apple wood and fruitcake accents. A crowd-pleasing version, kept honest by fresh acidity. Drink now."

100% Syrah
The Hauts Châssis estate is in the middle of the locality called "Les Hauts
Châssis" in the south of the Crozes Hermitage appellation area. Its soils have
big stones which absorb the heat all day long and give it off again at night. Big
round stones of Alpine diluvium to a depth of 50 to 80cm with coarse sand
and red clay . Vines : 20 to 40 years old - 29,65 acres - Yield : 35 HL/Ha

Matured for 12 months then blended and bottled the following autumn.

Clear very deep crimson and purple. An expressive nose of spice, fruit and
jam with vanilla, Havana tobacco, cacao, liquorice, black cherry, morello
cherry, blackcurrant and blackberry. A full warm fruity well-balanced mouth
with fine lively tannins giving it a good long finish. ~ Winery Notes

Affordable Rhone Red - First encountered this wine at Maison Hugo on East 61st Street in Manhattan. Liked it so much I bought a case and intend to buy another. Not profound but thoroughly enjoyable.
