2019 Syrah, Domaine de Vigier 'Cuvée des Patriarches'
Domaine de Vigier is nestled between the Cevennes and the Rhône Valley in the south of the Ardèche department. Le Domaine de Vigier is one of the oldest wineries in Ardèche. In spirit, part of the Côtes du Rhone wines category, but with a definitively local twist. Clay-limestone soil, on terraces of river pebbles with strong sunshine exposure. Syrah of around 40 years of age, for which the yield doesn’t exceed 50 hectolitres/hectare. Vinified the traditional way: destemming, racking and vatting for 2 weeks, then barrelled for 9 months.
