2015 Côte-Rôtie Sybarine, Domaine Garon

TASTING NOTES

The least expensive release is the 400-case 2015 Côte Rôtie La Sybarine, which comes from two terroirs, the Le Goutay and the le Mollard, and is 100% Syrah that was mostly destemmed and aged in older barrels. It offers beautiful black and blue fruits, leafy herbs, olive tapenade and a touch of minerality in an elegant, medium to full-bodied style. It should be a smoking value!

Domaine Garon

The Garon family have been landowners in Ampuis for 500 years, but it wasn’t until 1982 that they started tending to the neglected vines on their land. Releasing their first cuvée in 1995, Jean-Francois Garon observed with little irony that "it wasn't bad for the vineyards to rest a hundred years between plantings." Today, this traditional producer makes three wines from the Côte-Rôtie’s Côte Blonde and one from the Côte Brune, all mostly destemmed and aged in a mix of new and older French oak.
