2019 First Flight Syrah, Domaine Bott

Juicy and pure, light-footed and elegant, this Syrah has such a smooth and fresh frame, it will drink well from the off. It comes from vines near Ampuis, planted higher up, just above the Côte Rôtie appellation. It is bursting with fruit, high energy, and joyful in its expression. Another triumph from this young domaine. Stock up.

2019 First Flight Syrah, Domaine Bott
Domaine Bott

Kiwi Graeme and local Julie met working for Stéphane Ogier. After a decade spent working for one of the greatest winemakers of Côte Rôtie, the young couple, affectionately known as “Les Kiwis d’Ampuis”, decided to strike out on their own. They own six hectares across Côte Rôtie, Condrieu, and St Joseph that they are busily planting. With the success of their first few vintages they have managed to upgrade winemaking facilities from their small garage to a neighbour’s slightly larger one. These wines are handcrafted, and the early results suggest a bright future for this new domaine.
