Full-bodied but still light, with peppery notes and striking red fruit and berry flavors.

A beautiful expression of Syrah – light but still intense, with peppery notes complimented by striking flavors of red fruit and dry earth. A beautifully composed Syrah to be opened at the first opportunity.

Traditional vinification with aging for 11 month in demi-muids and oak barrels. Hand-harvested, gentle vinification with native yeasts.

Grown in schist, micaschist, clay soils. Pierre-Andre and Anne Deplaude were farmers before they were vignerons. When they started to farm in the out-of-the-way Coteaux-Du-Gier somewhere between Lyon and Clermont-Ferrand, wine wasn’t a priority. Instead it was grains, fruits and dairy cows as well as a tiny production of wines. This kept going until the early 2000s when a drop in milk prices forced them to rethink a few things, and they decided to take some of their most interesting land and convert it to vineyards. What didn’t change was the commitment to be farmers first, to work the land honestly and responsibly and have the product reflect that.
