A complex and subtle Syrah from France.

Almost purple in colour, and elegant as they come with super smooth tannins from oak ageing. Very floral on the nose with notes of violet, rosemary, thyme and dark red fruits. Spicy and meaty on the palate with more dark red fruits, red plums, cherries and a hint of mocha. 

 About the winemaker:

In 2004, at the age of 28, Natacha Chave started her own domain. This fledging vigneronne bought 1.3 hectares of vines among the hilly fertile soils of Saint-Joseph in Northern Rhône. Just three years later, in 2007, she grew her domain, purchasing another 6.5 hectares of old vines in the Crozes-Hermitage appellation, where she added some new plantings as well. Winemaking is in her blood. Her parents realised their dream of making wine in the 1970s, when they established a small winery in Crozes-Hermitage. Her older brother, the eminent Yann Chave, later took over their parents’ estate. Rather than join the family business, Natacha desired independence and to make wine free of limitations. She had her eye set on the region in which she grew up, the Northern Rhône, where she believes the perfect expression of her favourite grape Syrah can be found.
