Domaine Garon - 'La Part des Vivants' Cotes du Rhone 2019
Region: Northern Rhone (Cotes-du-Rhone)
Grapes: Syrah (80%) / Grenache (20%)
A medium bodied red, with beautiful fleshy texture filled with pure ripe black berries, earth, cherry and chocolate notes. Balanced, with good acidity, spice again on the palate and a saline fresh finish. Darker and spicier than most Southern Rhone, this wine is unique.
‘La Part des Vivants’: means the wine left for us to drink after the angel’s share evaporate. This rare Northern Rhone Cotes du Rhone is made mostly of Syrah, coming from Ampuis area not far from the Cote-Rotie vineyards. The Grenache comes from declassified Cru Cairanne. Vineyards are ploughed by a horse. This cuvee is mostly de-stemmed, with traditional vinification and no sulphur during the vinification and ageing. Aged in very old barrels of 228 litres. Low sulphur at bottling.
