Texier 2010 Cotes-du-Rhone St. Julien St. Alban Serine

In Saint-Julien-en-Saint-Alban, a village on the opposite side of the Rhône from Brézème in the Ardeche, Eric found vineyards in massale selection, never treated with chemicals, including a tiny plot of old vine Serine on micaschist and marne soils. We tasted the 2010 last winter before bottling - Very pretty, quite complex red fruit, citrus and floral aromas, black fruits on the palate, dark and deep with terrific length. Great balance and acidity, light on it's feet, this will age well. Lovely! ("No sulphur needed. Therefore no sulphur added. But THIS IS NOT A NO SULFUR WINE BY DESIGN, for Bacchus sake!!!!!!!!!!!!!No carbonic @#$%, no reductive ageing, no extended lees contact no addition of CO2... This is a traditional whole cluster syrah from decomposed granite in the Northern Rhone, bottled without sulphur. Period." - Eric)
