St. Julien en St. Alban Rouge
We Smell: Black cherry, violet and spice.
We Taste: Grippy tannins, salami, crunchy berries.
We Love: 100% Syrah from a Bordeaux native, Eric Texier and his family take a 'very old-school and very minimalist' approach to their low-intervention winemaking. The wines are punchy, and purposeful.
