Product Description:

"This smoky, savory, light-bodied syrah comes from the Collines Rhodaniennes, hillside vineyards outside the most esteemed areas of the northern Rhône. It’s not a wine that suggests the mysteries of terroir. It’s simply pure pleasure and low in alcohol. Lightly chilled, it’s perfect with charcuterie." - New York Times '20 Wines under $20'

"Although Benoît grew up in the Northern Rhône and his family has a history of grape growing in other parts of Europe, he has literally created his domaine from the ground up. From converting a sheep shelter into a cellar, to planting vineyards at the Côteau Taupin in Côte-Rôtie and around his family's home in Pélussin, Benoît is truly building every piece of his domaine. All of these vineyards are worked either biodynamically or organically, and many are in process of certification. The grapes are foot-trodden, fermentation occurs with native yeast in neutral vessels (either stainless steel or resin tanks), the wines are pressed off using an old basket press, and are raised in old 600L demi-muid barrels. The wines are traditional in style and echo the great Northern Rhône wines of the past." - Winery
