(2021) Buyer Marcel Orford Williams says 2016 is the best vintage he has seen in the Rhône in recent years, this from the very small region of Brézème just south of Crozes-Hermitage, is 100% Syrah. What a delightful perfume on this, hints of violet and rose, a cool fleck of pepper, and firm and juicy red fruits beneath. Aromatically complex, it follows onto the palate with silky tannins and pert, vital acidity, both keeping very good freshness against the savoury fruit and hint of meatiness, spice and tobacco. Long and a little star.
