2017 Syrah, Baron Philippe de Rothschild, Vin de Pays d'Oc
"An intense deep garnet colour. The inviting ripe nose has notes of pepper and garique supported by super concentration on the pallet. Supple texture and a fresh and juicy finish, very good value"
Made without the use of oak, from selected vineyards in the Limoux this 100% Syrah is powerful and rich, but well balanced and not overpowering and leans more to the style of northern Rhone than the south of France. We thought it was a really good find and amazing value.
The Baron Philippe de Rothschild own label range has been developed by the family to bring good value drinking wines to the table by utilising their extensive wine making contacts in the Limoux region. To source the fruit they have developed strong relationships with local growers and in many instances they incorporate young vine fruit from their Domaine Baron’arques.
