Les Jamelles Syrah 2017
This Syrah has a very dark colour and a fairly syrupy appearance. It has aromas of wild berry fruits (raspberries, gooseberries, blackcurrants), spices, cinnamon and a touch of mint. It is very rich and fat on the palate with a long, silky finish. This is a wine of a rare complexity.
Les Jamelles is a unique collection of handcrafted varietal wines that have been produced in the Pays d'Oc, in the South of France, since 1991. Catherine and Laurent Delaunay travelled throughout the Languedoc-Roussillon region for several years to determine which were the best terroirs for each variety and convince growers to work with Les Jamelles to produce characterful, well-balanced, complex wines that express their varietal characteristics. The grapes, grown year upon year by local growers, are vinified on site as close as possible to the vineyards, under the watchful eye of Catherine Delaunay and her winemaking team. The most up-to-date techniques are used, and are adapted to suit the characteristics of each wine and each vintage.
