Laurent Combier, a second generation vigneron, passionately continues the work begun by his father, Maurice, an organic pioneer who established the estate in the early sixties. What began life largely as pear and apricot orchards with a smattering of vines now includes fifty acres of dynamic vineyard. Formerly known as "Cuvée L" this is the estate's supremely affordable high quality offering of classic (and very distinctive) Northern Rhone Syrah with an eye turned toward the bistro - a collision vibrant black fruit and meaty earth armed with an admirably rustic-edged finesse. Serving Suggestion: This one's for the carnivores. Decadent Lyonnaise cuisine. Braised mutton w/ caramelized shallots & scalloped potatoes w/ parsley. Aged sheep's milk cheeses. A staff favorite at FW. Masculine, meaty but with finesse. Earth, leather, old books, cassis, rich plum, sage & marjoram. Intensely complex, a decadent pleasure.
