Les Vignes des Enfants


From a beautiful half hectare of 20 year old vines planted with a rare strain of Syrah, à Petits Grains, the cuttings of which came from the vineyards of Jean-Louis Chave. The plants are trained in goblet over a complex terroir of clay, limestone and marnes bleues and the fruit is fermented on the skins for five days, before being pressed into old barriques to rest for almost a year. This is a beautiful take on Syrah, delicately spiced and whistle-clean with fine little tannins.
