A newly released vintage of a tried and tested wine by Nicholas Badel, "Les Mourrays". Fermented with 25% whole bunch and 75% destemmed, sat on skins for 21 days in concrete tanks and spent 9 months ageing in old oak barrels. Made from a single-vineyard of 50 year old Syrah vines on a south facing slope at an elevation of 300m with great sun exposure and cooling winds. 

 About the winemaker:

"Hailing from the Northern Rhône and a family of local farmers, Nicolas Badel trained as an engineer before deciding that winemaking was where his heart was. Nicolas returned to school and studied viticulture, spending many years working in other people’s vineyards. In 1999 he acquired his vineyards in Saint-Joseph and Condrieu near the town of Limony (Northern most part of the Rhone Valley) and began by selling his wine to the local cooperative, waiting until he was ready to release his own wine in 2010 from his own 7 hectares. He is not one to rush anything; instead, he is a steadfast perfectionist who prefers to take his time and do things the right way. He has been certified organic since the very beginning and is now in the process of carefully working biodynamics into his vineyards, with the intent of making the finest wines possible from his terroir."
