our timeless hero
Syrah, Rhône Valley, France

Anything but your average Syrah! After graduating with a masters in philosophy, Natacha Chave returned to her family’s historic estate in Hermitage, the promised land of Syrah in France.

Anything but your average Syrah! After graduating with a masters in philosophy, Natacha Chave returned to her family’s historic estate in Hermitage, the promised land of Syrah in France. Her wines are made with as little intervention as possible, an approach that sounds hands-off but is in all actuality totally meticulous and hands-on – biodynamic preparations, hand-picking, wild yeasts, minimal sulphites and no fining or filtration. If you insist on calling this textbook—which it’s NOT, it’s simply classic and as a result, TIMELESS!—compare it to a forever-figure like Missy Elliott to make the point that this’ll truly stand the test of time, or at least a couple of years in cellar. 14 months in oak. Aristocratic and capital-R rich with the violet hue of a Crown Royal bag, toasty-dark & floral-spicy — blackberry tart, damson plum, Soma blackcurrant chocolate bar, grated nutmeg & leather whip tannins. Like that scene in Charlie’s Angels where Lucy Liu dresses up as an “efficiency expert” in a skin-tight black leather skirt-suit, this is whip-smart and remarkable, the beauty that we have been starving for.
