96% Syrah, 4% Viognier, mostly Mollard lieu-dit with fruit from both the Côte Brune and Côte Blonde sides of the hill. A smokin’ release, the more elegant offspring of the hyped 2015. Delivers amazing line, length and persistence, an abundance of savoury black fruits woven with olive tapenade and a firm though not stern mineral spine. Will reward cellaring time of course though ready to go with a good decant. Certainly more classical in style and an exercise in restrained power.
“Crushed granite, smoke and bramble introduce penetrating black-cherry and plum flavors in this piercing Syrah. It’s a powerful, firmly structured wine edged by strikes of zesty acidity and persistent but chalky tannins. Aromatic intensity and complexity should improve with time. Hold till 2022 at least.” 95 points, Anna Lee C. Iijima, Winemag
