Even better, and again, a superb value that competes with wines two to three time its price, the 2011 Syrah l’Ame Soeur IGP is comprised of 100% Syrah that comes from schist soils, north of Ampuis, that are very similar to what’s found in the northern part of Cote Rotie (although the schist in this more northern region is a lighter gold color). This region will most likely receive its own appellation in the near future. Elegant and finesse-driven, with hints of crushed flowers, olive, underbrush and copious red and black fruits, this medium to full-bodied beauty has fine tannin, a seamless texture and ample length on the finish. It can be consumed now, or cellared for upwards of a decade. (JD)
Brilliant ruby-red. Heady red berry compote and spicecake scents are complicated by a suave floral quality and a zesty mineral flourish. Sweet, penetrating and pure on the palate, offering energetic raspberry and floral pastille flavors that give way to deeper cherry with air. Tight, spicy and fat-free wine with strong finishing cut and dusty tannins that add grip and firmness. (JR)
Offers pure cassis, white pepper and violet notes, with a long, sleek finish. An iron hint fills in the background. 20 cases imported. (JM)
