A very special Syrah produced from the domaine's oldest rows. Black ruby in the glass, great depth, with plenty of black fruits and meat in the nose. The finish is spicy and super long; with medium plus well-integrated tannins. Only 1500 bottles have been made. It is very suited to grilled meats. This wine is only made occasionally in the best vintages (2009, 2012). Next vintage: 2015; estimated bottling: 12/2020.
Vintage 2012 is only available in Magnums.
