Northern Rhône Super Six Mixed Case Offer
Sublime Syrah from top winemakers.
Syrah is the only permitted red grape in the crus of the Northern Rhône, providing the rich, full-bodied wines of Côte-Rôtie, Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage, Saint-Joseph and Cornas. In general, Northern Rhône Syrah displays a bouquet of dark fruits and violets, complex flavours of peppers, olives, herbs and smoky meats, supported firm, sleek tannins. This terrific six-pack provides examples from world-renowned names - Graillot, Chave and Vernay – as well as less-heralded producers Domaine Lombard and Rémy Nodin.
In vogue appellations Saint-Joseph and Crozes-Hermitage offer interpretations of the grape from Chave and Graillot with the former's 'Sélection' bottling showing a little more spice than the slightly more fruit-forward Graillot style (both 'St Jo' & Crozes'). Based in Saint-Péray, Rémy and Amandine Nodin produce still and sparkling whites under the AOC whilst also vinifying small parcels from across the region. Their Cornas is a riot of blackberry fruit, spice and a savoury elegance from granite slopes. Gérard Chave introduced us to Brézème and Domaine Lombard in the mid 1980s, which has proved a wonderful source of bright, energetic Syrah ever since. To finish, we have included Domaine Vernay's elegant, fresh IGP Collines Rhodaniennes 'Fleurs du Mai', which was the first (challenging) solo vinification of Emma Amsellem (Paul & Christine's daughter).
