Cuvée Saint Honorat 2018 (Syrah)
The year 2018 was a very atypical vintage on the Mediterranean rim. Very rainy during spring and early summer. It required constant vigilance in the plots. From the beginning of July onwards, drier and warmer weather allowed the grapes to ripen peacefully. Grapes harvested a little late revealed great organoleptic qualities in the cellar. A beautiful liveliness and a fresh aroma of red berries are the characteristics of this vintage.
All this favoured a very good harvest in terms of volume ! and quality. The wine is finer, suppler and silkier than other vintages. You can drink it now or wait a little.

TASTED IN DECEMBER 2018 RAW BARRELS AND TANKS, IN PRIMEURS.
An intense and brilliant purple colour with purple reflections adorns this Saint Honorat 2018. An initial nose of raspberry, blackberry, pepper and a hint of cinnamon reveals a complex aromatic bouquet which is carried by a beautiful acidity and an intense tannin structure in the mouth. This great wine shows all its ageing potential and leaves a smooth finish and a beautiful aftertaste..
