Aromatic, pure 100% Syrah with lively blueberry and blackberry fruits, and touches of olives, white and black pepper with earth, flowers and herbs and a very soft texture. Pair with lamb, cassoulet, charcuterie.
Young Sebastien Blachon established his winery in 2013 and has hit the ground running with his gorgeous Syrahs. Blachon is self-taught and farms 5 terraced hectares in the prized terroirs of the Saint Joseph appellation in the northern Rhone Valley. This is northern Rhone without question. Savory, blue fruits, cracked pepper and black olives. Not your inky or super extracted style of Syrah, this is a restrained and leaner wine but one packed with succulent cool climate Syrah flavor.
