A Sensational Silky Syrah a la Hermitage

 

2015 Domaine Belles Granges Syrah, Cave de Tain, Hermitage

“Plump, savoury & silky – blows away most Crozes Hermitage” JW

Quality Syrah can be hard to beat and the region of Northern Rhone is its home. Here you find the renowned appellation of Hermitage and vineyards that can rival Bordeaux’s finest. Unlike Claret, Rhone wines have not seen the stratospheric price increases of recent years and remains the place to find some of the best value fine wine in France.

Cave de Tain are based at the foot of the famous hill of Hermitage and make fantastic wines of exceptional value. Domaine Belles Granges is their best kept secret, better than many Crozes-Hermitage but half the price. It is produced from vineyards just outside that appellation and really shines in exceptional vintages – 2015 was one such vintage with near perfect growing conditions. Do not expect a Shiraz like powerhouse here, this is ripe, silky and savoury Syrah that is created in a more subtle way and slowly charms with each mouthful.

2015 Domaine Belles Granges Syrah, Cave de Tain @ £55 per case (6 bottles)

“A glorious example of the subtle, fruit driven elegance that is Northern Rhone Syrah. Ripe plum, juicy blackcurrant and savoury undertones with a hint of tar. Soft and elegant on the palate with layers of dark fruit and a touch of pepper on the finish. Plump, silky and savoury and blows away most Crozes Hermitages at double the price. A true winner!” JW

2021 Quatro Ventos – Portugal’s Top Value Red

Few Countries offer better value around the £10 a bottle mark than Portugal and, in my opinion, one of the very best at this price point is Quatro Ventos from the Douro valley. I remember this wine blowing me away at a Wines of Portugal tasting back in 2019 and then one week later my […]
