Syrah, Domaine François VILLARD, "L'appel des Sereines" Rhône, 2016
Francois Villard is one of Condrieu's most intriguing winemakers. This northern Rhone shows that the delicate features of Syrah are just as important as its big bold expression in the southern Rhone. Full of bright juicy red fruit, great acidity, clean minerality, and a lovely spiceness & lightness on the palate typical of the north.
