Syrah by Rothschild Waddesdon, IGP Pays d’Oc 2020 (Six Bottle Case)

£59.70

This brand new range of varietal wines, selected by our team at Waddesdon, represents the finest quality ‘house wines’ we have ever released. This collection of wines will replace the long-standing Baron Philippe d’Oc range – and offers an impressive level of purity, definition and varietal expression that is rarely associated with this category and price point. After a series of blind tastings our Rothschild Waddesdon range performed exceptionally, and we are incredibly proud to call these wines our own. We hope you have as much fun tasting them as we did selecting them.

Tasting notes

Sourced from southern facing vineyards on the edge of Montpellier, this Syrah has a wonderful balance of ripeness and freshness. A two week fermentation on the skins has draw a wonderful robe of garnet-red with shimmering highlights. There’s plenty of spice that adds depth to the core of ripe fruit; yet this spice doesn’t dominate, it just hovers in the background and is happy to let the fruit take the lead role. Unlike some of wines produced in the south of France in 2020, this doesn’t have excessive levels of alcohol. This is more about approachable elegant fruit with balance and poise. One of favourites’ from the range. A cracking wine at less than £10.00.
