A deeply colored, rich Syrah from the most northern appellation in the Rhone Valley. The palate is full of sappy black fruit, olives, and sweet baking spice on the finish. The tannins are soft and the wine does well with a 30 minute decant before consuming.
Lovely half bottle for quiet night with a steak or a burger.

Bernard Burgaud is one of the more understated producers of the Côte-Rôtie appellation, making just one wine from 100% Syrah. After inheriting the family business from his father in 1980, he began bottling his own wine in 1982, shortly before he first met Martine, and their partnership began with the 1983 vintage.
From his small domaine, perched atop a steep hill overlooking Ampuis, he produces 1,000 cases a year from 22 acres of vines planted in several lieux-dits in the appellation, the majority from the Les Moutonnes and Côte Blonde vineyards. Bernard believes the blending of his terroirs results in a more complete and balanced wine: His vineyards in the Côte Brune provide power and muscularity, while those in the Côte Blonde bring finesse and elegance. Bernard eschews passing trends and stays true to traditional methods, aging his wines in 600-liter barrels, 20% of which are new and the rest up to five years old.
The resulting cuveés are best personified by Bernard himself, a humble, charming, traditional man who waxes poetic on the beauty of his land and his wine. His classic, well-balanced wines taste of black fruit and olives, with earthy and rustic flavors. They are to be aged, developing into perfectly elegant wines.
Forget what you thought you knew about Riesling. This natural, skin-contact expression from Domaine Bohn shows a whole ‘nother side of what the variety can do – and now with over ten years of age on it, a brand new layer of complexity is settling in.
Orange wine lovers, this is a one-of-a-kind tasting experience. Due to its age and natural vinification, we recommend decanting before enjoying.
This Cab is grown on a west-facing slope, above the fog line, on the northern ridge of the Atlas Peak AVA. The palate is dense and complex, marked by a long and polished finish. All we can say is, there’s a reason this graces the wine list at the French Laundry.
