Syrah grown on schiste (crumbly slate) soil, in vineyards situated 200-plus metres above sea level, makes for one of the most distinctive, recognisable and refreshing styles of red Languedoc wine. Heady aromas of bramble, black cherry, pepper/spice, freshly-baked bread, leather, and the merest whiff of black olive tapenade greet the nose, all of which carry through onto the palate, with all that sweet-sour-savoury-umami fruit perfectly complemented by grippy, gently rustic, tea-like tannins and really mouth-watering orange and cherry skin acidity. Really cracking stuff, and a bargain, for a properly iconic Languedoc red.
