This week we will be opening a range of village wines from the Northern Rhȏne. These are perfect wines for this time of year, and offer a refreshing change of pace from Cabernet and Pinot Noir. Syrah is king here, and it reveals a style unique to this region. Think purple fruits, violets, spice and white pepper notes delivered in an easy drinking style - a perfect companion for the warmer meals of the season. This lineup shows a great range of appelations for drinking, while your Cȏte-Rȏtie and Hermitage age in the cellar.
