Etienne Becheras makes especially affordable wines in a pure, unaltered style that we find ourselves reaching for on an almost everyday basis. The organically farmed fruit for this cuvandeacute;e is sourced from vineyards planted on schist and granite, and it is raised for 18 to 24 months in a mix of used barrels of varying size. It's textbook stuff - fresh, smoky and juicy with fine grained tannins. This is porch-pounding Syrah that glides across the palate and one that overdelivers in spades.
