100% Syrah from a small parcel just shy of a hectare. The vineyard is on the back side of the hill of Hermitage and faces southeast. These vines are almost 80 years old and the wine is higher-toned with more “nervosité” than the Babylone. Aged in used oak. More red fruit in character than the Babylone with notes of Northern Rhone black pepper in the mix.
