|Article number:||Francois Grenier Syrah Ardeche IGP 2015|
|Availability:||In stock (14)|
Rising star François Grenier started out participating in a cooperative for several years, but decided in 2014 to go solo, buying an old automotive garage and turning it into a winery with 400 liter barrels and truncated-cone cement vats. A talented young grower, Grenier works 20 hectares of marsanne, roussanne, viognier, and syrah in the Ardèche region of the Northern Rhône. This syrah offers up a mouthful of spicy dark fruit, including currants, blueberries, and wild black raspberries. Hints of black olives meld with succulent tannins, dashes of cracked black pepper, and a smoky, meaty finish.
