Les Bruyeres Syrah Joe Chandellier, 100% Syrah, natural wine, Languedoc, medium bodied, spicy, lively Syrah with tons of freshness. Located in St Côme et Maruejols, 12km from Nimes, the vines are north facing and benefit from cooling breezes which flow down from the nearby hills. This helps to keep the acidity in the berries and enables Joe to make fresh youthful reds full of vitality and fruitiness. ‘Les Bruyeres’ is made with carbonic maceration which lasts for 8 days. Aged in fibreglass, with just a small amount of sulphur added at bottling. Medium in weight, with bright, plummy fruit, a touch of spice and just the right amount of rusticity. Bright and fresh enough for drinking on its own, but would also be a great partner to lighter meat preparations or a cheese board. The wine has had a slight refermentation in bottle which adds a subtle froth upon opening although the wine is till fruity and fresh to drink, the delights of natural wine!
