Matthieu Barret, Syrah "Et La Bannière" Crozes-Hermitage, Northern Rhône, France 2018
This wine comes from David Reynaud's vineyard, a biodynamic producer from Crozes-Hermitage. Barret sources from the younger vines to get a more vibrant expression of fruit. Everything is under Barret's direction from harvest until bottling.
Grapes are hand-harvested from vines averaging 20 years, on soil of rounded pebbles with clay and alluvials. Fermentation with indigenous yeast; 10 days of carbonic maceration in stainless steel. The wine ages for 9 months in stainless steel. Filtered but unfined.
Certified organic and biodynamic.
