95Wine Enthusiast

Lavender and violet perfume extends from nose to finish in this aromatic Syrah. Black-plum and cherry flavors are juicy yet spry, balanced by crisp acidity and tangs of crushed granite. Ripe, fine tannins accentuate its supple style.

...beautiful perfume of black raspberries, dried flowers, incense, and cured meats. Medium to full-bodied and seamless on the palate...

91-93Vinous / IWC

Suave, mineral-accented dark berry, violet and incense scents show very good definition and pick up a smoky nuance as the wine opens up. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering concentrated blackberry and cassis flavors and a touch of olive. Clings with strong tenacity on the finish, which is shaped by smooth, slow-building tannins.

17Jancis Robinson

Big and round and unusually concentrated for a Côte Rôtie. But it’s a fine wine with, just, the sap and savour of Côte Rôtie in evidence on the palate. Long and well balanced. Very clean finish.


France, Rhône Valley, Northern Rhône, Côte-Rôtie

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.”


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.
