Grain Syrah Marie-Therese Chappaz 2020 biodynamic wine, Switzerland, 100% Syrah, Granitic soils, from the Fully Les Claives vineyard. A wine of sheer class, very fresh as one would expect from Syrah on Granite soils. The wine comes from low yields so the appearance is deep and dark demonstrating the concentration and body. The nose is fresh and youthful at the moment, notes of spice, not black pepper, more sweetness and vanilla (which comes from the fruit, not the barrels) with bilberry and blackberry fruits. The texture is full, warm, long yet very fresh. A stunning glass of Syrah, for long ageing and serious food matching, the best cuts of meat, veal and braised beef.
