Syrah Domaine Richeaume AC (Provence)
The Richeaume battleship is relaunched! Considered by many (including myself!) to be the most memorable of the Richeaume wines, its Syrah fruit comes from 45 year old vines. It's a deep red hue with violet tints and its confident varietal character is nicely tempered by oak (40% new French / 60% fut). Addictively full, rich and rounded in the mouth the tannins are soft and concentrated. There are lush flavours of ripe fig, vanilla, morello cherry and chocolate. Whilst it has great ageing potential it will prove rewarding at each stage of its evolution.
