« The 2014 Syrah Domaine Des Chirats comes from Rockpile. It is a collaboration with Yves Cuilleron from France’s Northern Rhône. This is made from what is believed to be Chapoutier suitcase clones. [...] Beautiful elegance and complexity with notes of blueberry, blackberry, floral notes, and great acid, this is a dead ringer for a Northern Hermitage or Côte-Rôtie. A gorgeous, dense purple color to the rim, sweet, juicy fruit, full body, but again, incredible freshness and vibrancy. This is a stunner and comes in at 15.2% natural alcohol, but seems light on its feet. Drink it over the next decade or more. » (Wine Advocate 2016 - Robert Parker)

About this wine : Le Domaine des Chirats Syrah 2014 provient de Rockpile. C'est une collaboration avec Yves Cuilleron, du Nord de la Vallée du Rhône. [...] D'une superbe élégance et complexité avec des notes de myrtille, de mûre, de fleurs, et une belle acidité, c'est le sosie d'un Hermitage ou d'un Côte-Rôtie. Une sublime couleur pourpre dense, un fruité doux et juteux, charpenté, mais une incroyable fraîcheur et dynamisme. C'est superbe et malgré ses 15+% d'alcool, il parait léger. A apprécier au cours de la décennie. PS : lorsqu'il attend dans le verre, il développe des notes viandées de lard et de bacon.
