This comes from the property’s ‘Olive Tree’ block and is very much made in a Côte-Rotie style. The blend is 95% Syrah and 5% Viognier resulting in a hauntingly perfumed nose of violets and damsons. There’s more of the same on the palate with floral lift, precision and elegance. The attack is juicy and the tannins are skillfully woven. Utterly balanced and beguiling.
