Eric Texier Côtes du Rhône Brézème 2016

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Funky on the nose at first with some diesel notes then this turns pepper with green peppercorn notes over grilled meat topped with some crushed juniper and a hint of wood. This is savory right off the bat with layers of cut cherry, peppercorn, boysenberry and mineral flavors that are supported by a lean, tight framework of crisp acidity and polished tannins. Long not he finish and with a restrained power this just makes me want to keep drinking it, though in truth the best is to come. Give this 2-5 years in the cellar. 92pts

The nose showed blackberry with savory spices, reminding me of mustard seed and pepper followed by mineral laden black stone. On the palate, it was light-to-medium bodied with zesty acidity, black fruits, grill char, herbs and orange peel. The finish was dry with cheek puckering tannin, showing tart black fruits and pepper notes.

Buttery. Good for Chardonnay drinkers.

Vibrant red purple in color. MUST let it breathe for an hour otherwise sour, red fruit & thin upon initial taste. After it breathes, the weight one expects of a Syrah comes out along with darker fruit flavors (cherries & plums) and rich mocha lushness. Silky and tannins are well integrated. Med+ acidity, med complexity and easy to drink. Dynamite with Toscano hard cheese with black pepper crust. Also good with Point Reyes Blue or Humboldt Goat cheeses.

Had this at Woodlot with the girls, and it was delicious. Very peppery, like a gamay.

Classic example of cool-climate Syrah from the northern Rhône. It shows fat, smoky tar and game over huckleberry and blackcurrant fruit; it has great acidity and plenty of staying power, so be sure to give it lots of air.
