Winery Tasting Notes

Grape Variety

100% Syrah.

Aroma

A swirling, almost primeval nose offers scents of raspberry, graphite, sweet spice and forest floor complexity.

Palate

The palate is tightly wound with floral, red berry fruits and cherries flavours quickly wrapped in an incredibly precise and mineral-driven finish.

At this age, a lengthy decant is mandatory to judge the potential of this wine.

Winemaking Note

From the top of the Les Geynale vineyard with a high proportion of 1910 vines. Low yielding with a perfect aspect. 85% of vintage was whole bunch fermented and aged 12 – 15 months in primarily one year old oak with some new and 2 – 3 year old barrels. Bottled with a light fining, no filtration and minimal sulphur addition. The defining characteristic of Vincent’s style is non oxidative handling, barely touching the barrels during maturation of up to 12 months.
