    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine is deep and saturated, with a peppery, cassis-scented nose as the smell of garrigue -- an herby, earthy combination. Rich and full-bodied, with voluptuous texture. This is pure personality and a knock-out wine.

    Blend: 90% Syrah and 10% Grenache

    Critical Acclaim:

    The classic cuvee, which has long been selected by importer Eric Solomon, is their 2010 Domaine d’Andezon, a blend of 90% Syrah and 10% Grenache. While there are critics of Syrah grown in the southern Rhone, even the cynics agree that the old-vine Syrah from the Gard has a special character to it. This wine comes from 40+-year-old Syrah vines and 60+-year-old Grenache vines, bottled unfined and unfiltered after being aged in both tank and concrete. Dense ruby/purple, with a stunning nose of blackberry liqueur and jus de viande (beef/meat juices), its thrilling, intensely pure, full-bodied mouthfeel, good freshness, and striking floral character all combine for one of the very best bargains in dry red wine that readers are likely to find anywhere in the world. This is super and should continue to drink well for another 3-4 years.

    Nice CDR. Needs to rest a couple years. (A little too much tannin right now.)
