Equivalent Bottle Price £58.33
98% Syrah, 2% Viognier, sourced solely from vines planted in 1966 on the south/south-east-facing Côte Rozier parcel in the Côte Brune. Soils are mica-schist and ferric. Grapes are fully destemmed. The wine undergoes 18 months ageing in first and second fill oak barriques for 24 months.
Richer in tannins, it has a good complexity of aromas, since it has floral flavors, and strong fruit flavors (blackcurrant, blackberry, fig), but also has strong spicy flavors.
