Around 70% comes from the Côte Brune, with the rest from the Blonde. Dark and brooding, but with Côte-Rôtie’s trademark elegance, this is a nicely focussed and impressively long Syrah.
With an impressive female winemaker, Claire Darnaud, at the helm since 2010 (though with experience there dating back to 1996), and considerable investment in the cellar to move to the historic town centre, the wines here are some of the more refined in the region. Careful never to use more than 40% new oak, Claire is a master of her craft.
