6 in stock
Roving Sommelier is passionate about premium quality French regional wines. Yves Cuilleron is many wine lovers’ favourite Northern Rhône vigneron and has developed a fine reputation and cult status internationally, especially with connoisseurs of iconic French vineyards and lovers of Rhône style grapes. What’s more, Cuilleron is arguably most famous for their iconic whites and reds from Condrieu and Côte Rotie. Effectively, this Syrah is a ‘baby’ Côte Rotie, owing to the vineyard’s location of being very close to its more illustrious neighbour – hence “Les Vignes d’à Côté” – which means the younger Syrah ‘vines next door to’. Therefore, this prestigious red has been classified as an Indication Géographique Protégée Collines Rhodaniennes – an appellation located in the Rhône Valley.
This authentic Rhône Valley Syrah is super fresh and elegant displaying pure and pristine flavours of stone fruits such as cherry and plum with lovely spicy, floral, bramble and mineral notes. Best enjoyed at room temperature and in a convivial atmosphere. Perfect with duck.
