A bright, racy style, with a bay leaf frame to the violet, white pepper and damson plum core. An iron note adds tangy, mouthwatering length to the finish, which stays focused. Basically a Côte-Rôtie in all but name. Drink now through 2017. 20 cases imported.
The 2009 Syrah l'Ame Soeur VDP reveals great complexity with notes of lard, licorice, bay leaf, black raspberries and black currants. It possesses an expansive, savory mouthfeel, supple tannins, beautiful elegance and a style that could easily pass for a Cote Rotie in a blind tasting. This beauty should drink well for 7-8 years. This up and coming area of Seyssuel now has over 13 vignerons working on about 100 acres of vines.
Bright and precocious red fruit on nose with background floral elements. Darker fruit on palate with great minerality and spice. I have no idea where this is priced, but an overall very impressive Vin de Pays.~
