Comes from East facing, 50+ year old vines, hand picked and oak aged for 11 months. Toasted hazelnut and pear of the nose, with lots of fruit, acidity and minerality on the palate. Lush mouth feel. Very balanced.

2010 Eric Texier Cotes Du Rhone

A bright, racy, floral style, with delicious red currant and cherry fruit carried by mouthwatering acidity. Shows nice definition through the red licorice-tinged finish. Pure.

2009 Foradori Teraldego
