Petit Ours Brun Domain de Coulet 2014, biodynamic wine, 100% Syrah, elegant and fine Rhone red. This is majestic Syrah, the power of the south with the elegance of the north. Yields are very low, as low as 15 hectolitres per hectare and the wine is simply stunning. Exactly what you'd hope to find when tasting cool climate Syrah from the northern Rhone but which so many producers have lost in the rush for international markets who want big wines. Domain de Coulet is fresh, fresh, fresh, a bottle of red you cannot put down, I challenge anyone to leave a glass in this one for the following day!! On clay, limestone, and silty soils in the Rhone Valley basin, the Petit Ours (his nickname) comes from unbelievably low yields of only 18 hectolitres per hectare and yet at 12.5% abv, this Bio beauty has found superb ripeness at a lower alcohol level and maintained a delicious and authentic lean, peppery fruitiness. Lovely, lovely red wine for all occasions.

Domaine de Coulet is a wine estate of 16 hectares in Cornas in the northern Rhone valley. Mattieu Barret, (nicknamed 'Le Petit Ours Brun') took over from his father and since then the estate has grown in stature the point of being recognised as one of, if not the leading winery in the appellation. Mattieu's philosophy is simple, to allow his incredible natural terroir to create grapes of such exceptional quality that the wine makes itself virtually without the hand of man. Sounds easy hey? Well if it was, we would all be doing it! The key is family vineyard passed down through the generations which boasts some of the best terroir for Syrah in the world. 'Gore' is decomposed granite and this very poor ground forces the vines very, very deep in search of nutrients and on the way, they pick up the minerals and complexities that only nature can give you and transport them into the grape and then the wine.

  1. How good is this wine?


    Very very silly label - but a very very nice wine. Had it on it's own.

  2. How good is this wine?


    A easy drinking fruity wine. Nothing bad. But nothing to be excited about. I suspect more value could be found elsewhere.
