This reclusive producer is one of the best kept secrets in the Northern Rhône. He submits no wine for magazine reviews so no critical acclaim here. Just exceptional wine. That's great though, as this particular cuvée has 250 cases of production and is a stunning example of its style available in super limited quantities.

Neither fined, nor filtered, this textbook example of Northern Rhône Syrah comes from two parcels in the village of Arras in Saint-Joseph composed of schist and granite. The elevage is longer than his other cuvée. Fruit is hand harvested meticulously and fermentation occurs naturally. His elevage is an additionally impressive part of his process. He ages the wines for over two years in several different sizes of neutral French oak barrels before bottling. This deeply colored wine is filled with fruit that is dense and plum-like, and is chock full of pulverized peppercorns, lavender, braised meats and smoke.
