2018 Domaine Garon La Part des Vivants
80% Syrah and 20% Grenache from the spiritual home of both varieties.
"La Part des Vivants” means the wine left for us to drink after the angel share evaporates. The fruit is mostly de-stemmed, traditional vinification. Aged in very old barrels of 228 litres. Low sulphur. Dark colour, earthy, black berries, spices, dark chocolate on the nose as well as subtle old oak notes. On the palate, beautiful fleshy texture, balanced wine with a good acidity, spice again, pure ripe black berries and a saline fresh finish.
