Aged for 30 months in 10 years old 1/2muids., From 65 old syrah, locally called serine, grown on gneiss on the western bank of the Rhône. This vineyard has always been "marcotté" so there is no clones in it., The contrast with the Brézème is total. More classical of the Nothern Rhone, this terroir of steep slopes gives very refined and elegant wines.

      About Eric Texier

      Rhône, France

      I became a vigneron, in the almost forgotten vineyard area of Brézème (Northern Rhone). My goals and methodology were born through reading, visits to traditional winemakers and sustainable farms around the world. My winemaking is very old school and very minimalist and my main concern as a vigneron is the soil.
