Maison Les Alexandrins Syrah - 2017

Vin de France

La Syrah assemblée avec le Viognier crée un vin d'une plus grande finesse et élégance aromatique. Sur le terroir granitique de la Vallée du Rhône Nord, cet assemblage nous procure fraîcheur et gourmandise.


This wine tells you so much about Maison Les Alexandrin’s approach to winemaking – it’s marketed as 100% Syrah to keep things simple but in fact contains a 5% slice of Viognier to ensure great taste and an easy-drinking style. The 6ha of vines for this wine are in the southern part of Crozes-Hermitage as it just crosses into Vin de Pays. Spiced pepper notes add interest to the cherry and raspberry fruits, with an upward tickle of minerality on the finish; this bounces through the palate.

Deep violet. Ripe dark berries and a hint of olive on the nose and in the mouth. In a jammy, lush style, showing good depth and a hint of menthol on the warm, broad finish, which shows just a hint of supple tannins.
