This Syrah comes from a young vineyard in Beaujolais, a region that produces almost nothing but Gamay. Our friend Hugo at Domaine du Petite Pérou loves Syrah, and decided to take the unconventional step of declassifying one of his vineyards to produce something he is passionate about. As far as we know, there is no other Syrah produced in this region, and this rare wine defies expectations of the variety, with a light and refined style that will surprise you with its richness and spice. Incredible! Lamb ribs, duck terrine, and pork shoulder will pair excellently with this wine. 12.5% abv.
Appearance: Deep intensity, dark purple.
Nose: Pronounced, but very delicate notes of blackcurrant, strawberry and ripe plum. Followed by eucalyptus and licorice.
Mouth: Dry, full, intense body with low alcohol. Nice balance and match with aromas. Ripe, dark fruit and fresh jamminess. Followed by smooth violet floral aromas and a light toasted (roasted) flavor.
