Te profile of the reds is more ethereal than in recent years, showing remarkable aromatic complexity and a tannic structure characteristics of a true Syrah from the Northern Rhône Valley. Brightness, finesse and aromatic elegance are the hallmarks of this 2021 vintage. It follows in the footsteps of some of its glorious predecessors that possessed perfect maturity, grwat complexity and elegance.
