Francois Villard l'Appel des Sereines Syrah 2018
Deep, shimmering violet. Spice-accented blueberry, cherry and a hint of cracked pepper on the fragrant nose. Appealingly sweet and lively, showing good depth and clarity to the juicy, smoke- and spice-tinged black and blue fruit flavors. A building floral quality emerges with air and carries through the subtly tannic finish, which leaves a hint of allspice behind. Made with 60% whole clusters and raised in used foudres and barriques.
