Paul and Edith Chaudi re started this cuv e in 1990 and chose the name "Quintessence" to highlight the concentration of these wine essentially made of Syrah and the careful selection of most of the best plots of the Estate.

Opaque ruby core. Very aromatic with fresh blueberry violet and Eastern spice notes. Still a baby on the palate with sweet primary fruit wrapped in a silky robust texture. Stiff tannins on the finish speak to the age-ability of this syrah-dominant Rhone blend. A lot stuffing here packed into a very well-priced wine. Decant now or start popping the cork on this over the next 3-5 years. Will be delicious with spring BBQ fare and roasted meats. Devon Magee.
