Syrah

Originally from Savoir and Ardèche, this grape variety is emblematic of the northern part of the Côtes du Rhône. It is grown all over the world, representing 4% of the world’s vineyards. This black grape variety is used to make red, rosé, still and sparkling wines, both dry and sweet. A varietal with character, it is spicy and tends towards notes of red fruits and violets. It evolves very well over the years with notes of licorice and leather. It has good aging potential, depending on the appellation.
