Guilhem Durand Syrah les Genets 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

87 points Rhone Report: The 2008 Domaine La Bastide Syrah Vin de Pays d'Hauterive Les Genêts has an interesting bouquet of deep black fruits, mint, smoked meats, pepper, and tobacco. Showing a green herb/underbrush slant right on opening, this improves and shows more fruit and complexity with air. Medium bodied and impressive on the palate, with a silky texture, surprisingly ripe fruit, and juicy acidity, it almost gives the impression of a northern Rhone Syrah as opposed to one coming from the Languedoc. This should drink admirably for 5 years or so. (Nov 2010)
