2014 Côtes du Rhône, Brézème, Eric Texier

Sold Out

Syrah, fermented in a cluster, is richly evocative in hue and aroma, of hedgerow, red-berried fruit and whispers of spice. Succulent and sapid, there is no hint of 2014 dilution; on the contrary, the milder conditions have translated beautifully into an ensemble marked by both elegance and purity. Refined peppery tannins on the finish underline the pedigree of this almost forgotten region, almost but not quite, largely thanks to the amiable Monsieur Texier.
