Francois & Fils 2019 Cote Rotie, Rhone Valley, France
This tiny production Northern Rhone is actually a side project for this estate, they are cheese makers by trade. This is an amazingly complex Syrah, deep with smoky notes, blackberries and cracked pepper. Full on the palate but with a silken texture.There is some tannin grip but they are fine tannins, so they don't rip your palate apart. Built to age but drinks great with some decanting.
