RATINGS

94The Wine Advocate

A thrilling effort that does everything right.... sweet cassis, liquid violets, liquefied herbs, graphite and crushed rock, it flows onto the palate with a supple, full-bodied texture that carries layers of fruit, solid acidity

PRODUCER

Domaine Thierry Allemand

Domaine Thierry Allemand is a 12-acre estate in Cornas. It was founded in 1982 by Thierry Allemand, who was working at neighboring domaines when he started slowly acquiring vineyards. Today his 100% Syrahs have a cult following among those who collect Rhone Valley wines. The estate makes about 650 cases annually.

REGION

France, Rhône Valley, Northern Rhône, Cornas

The Northern Rhône Valley wine region hugs the Rhône River from Vienne in the north to Valence at its southern tip. The French call the region Côtes du Rhône Septentrionales, and it is divided into eight appellations. Along with its neighbor to the south, the Southern Rhone Valley, it is famous for its big, tannic, intensely concentrated wines. Syrah is the only red grape permitted in AOC wines from this sub-region, though the Syrah can be blended with the white wine grapes Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne, depending on the regulations for each AOC. White wines are made from Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne. Of the eight appellations in the north, the most admired wines tend to come from Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu and Hermitage, though there are certainly exceptional wines to be found in St. Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage, St.-Peray, Crozes-Hermitage and Cornas. Along with Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne, Rhône wines are among France’s best known and most collected wines. Red wines from these appellations are notable for their signature aromas of bacon and green olives, and for their depth. Robert M. Parker, a great champion of Rhone wines, has written that “the northern Rhône produces three of the greatest wines in the world – the white wines of Condrieu and the red wines of Côte-Rôtie and Hermitage.”

TYPE

Red Wine, Syrah (Shiraz)

This grape is grown in milder climates and produces a medium-to full-bodied wine. It is also known as Shiraz, but should not be confused with Petit Sirah, which was developed by crossing Syrah with Peloursin.
