93-95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2014

Tasted in components, followed by a hypothetical blend:  #1, from Lancement:  Burgundy-like scents of fresh red berries, candied flowers and Asian spices, with a bright mineral overtone.  Juicy and precise, with intense raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a strong note of spicecake  #2, from Bonnivier:  exotic, floral-tinged raspberry liqueur and cherry-cola scents show more power than the Lancement.  Juicy, pliant and expansive, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors and a touch of star anise.  Rich and pure, finishing with excellent back-end power and cut.  #3, from Le Plomb:  deep dark berries and licorice on the nose and palate; the most structured of these components, with serious finishing thrust and chewy tannins.  #4, from Bonnivier, Leyat, Cote Baudin, Tartaras and Moutonne:  black and blue fruit aromas, with cracked pepper and mineral accents gaining strength in the glass.  Plush and expansive, with sweet boysenberry and cassis flavors and a touch of spicecake.  #5, from Chavaroche, Cote Rozier and Cote Blonde:  the most floral of these barrels, offering intense potpourri and red fruit liqueur aromas and flavors and a touch of candied violet.  Tangy and penetrating on the finish, with the floral note strongly repeating. The potential ("very potential," according to Jamet) blend is highly floral, with forward berry and cherry character and a sexy violet pastille quality underscored by a smoky nuance.  Spicy and focused on the finish, with dusty tannins making a late appearance.  Highly promising and, at this stage, looking quite precocious.

Syrah

While the grape is currently grown throughout the world, the most elegant Syrahs still come from the Northern Rhone valley, particularly the appellations of Côte Rôtie, Cornas, and Hermitage. Here, steep, terraced vineyards help produce full-bodied, intense, tannic wines loaded with white pepper and red fruit. In the vineyard, Syrah is largely cooperative- vines are productive, but not overly vigorous. Skins are thick, helping the grape...
