2017 Éric Texier Brézème
This wine is fermented spontaneously.
Made from the younger Syrah from Brézème, on limestone marl, on the east bank of the Rhone. Like all Eric's reds, no destemming (whole bunch, crushed) and native yeasts. Aged for 18 months in 10 year old oak. Limestone in the northern Rhône gives wildness to Syrah. Higher acidity and more structure than Saint Julien.
