A pretty and fruity Syrah with silky texture and beautiful tannins.

Variety: 100% Syrah
Location: Northern Rhône, FR
Alcohol: 13.5%

A pretty wine with fruity and savory characters held together by beautiful tannins and a silky texture. While it will last for more years in the bottle, it’s drinking just beautifully now. A very beautiful and classic Syrah.

Half-destemmed, and pressed after a ten-day maceration. Élevage is done in concrete tank with no sulfur added.

Brézème is an anomaly in the northern Rhône. It is a single slope of rocky, broken down limestone (compared to the granitic soils that are the norm around these parts) rising above the alluvian plains of the Massif central. It is only planted to 22 hectares of vines, with the majority of them farmed by Martin and his father, Eric. Martin’s wine from here is sourced from 30-year-old Syrah vines.
