Rhone, France — Fred is based in the Loire, but he has a small negociant project where he buys organic/biodynamic fruit from friends in other regions. Like this Syrah from de-classified Chateauneuf-du-Pape vineyards, which is savory, peppery and fruit-forward, with structure, plush tannins and bright, lively fruit. Let it breathe for a sec then watch how it evolves, with minerality, subtle meaty notes, black pepper, and black cherry/red fruit doing somersaults in your mouth. This is Syrah as it is meant to be - pure juice that is easy and drinkable with a touch of rusticity to remind you that it's natural. A slight chill here is nice, but not required.
