Domaine d'Andezon Côtes du Rhône 2017
In 1994 Eric Solomon visited the Vignerons d'Estézargues and met a young, passionate director/winemaker named Jean-François Nicq. By the end of the day, they had decided on a custom bottling of old vine Syrah from one of their best parcels, Domaine d'Andezon. This opaque-black, blockbuster Syrah could have been a top Northern Rhone wine. What a find! Previously sold in bulk (vinous suicide) to a very famous producer in the Rhone Valley, Eric jumped at the opportunity to spotlight this unique expression of Syrah from a little-knowm corner of the Rhône valley. Depending on the vintage, up to 10% of the blend is Grenache from the same terroir as the Syrah.
