2020 Ardèche Syrah “Syrah Mauve”

Jean-Claude Marsanne
Discount Eligible $35.00
SOLD OUT

You may not hear the words “crushable” and “Syrah” used together that often, but here they are. Young vines, sulfur-free vinification, short élevage in stainless-steel tank, alcohol level kept in check—all the elements seem to have aligned to make the perfect juicy, black-fruited, violet-packed, fun, and crisp Syrah.

Chris Santini

Terroirs

Great winemakers, great terroirs, there is never any hurry. And I no longer buy into this idea of “peak” maturity. Great winemakers, great terroirs, their wines offer different pleasures at different ages.
