Named for Anthony Vallet`s grandfather Henri, who was fondly known as `Ritou`, this 100% Syrah is from vines that lie just outside the Saint-Joseph appellation, on pebbly plots on the banks of the River Rhône. Here, Anthony focusses his attention on producing a silky, easy-drinking, approachable Syrah, to contrast with his more concentrated, structured Saint-Josephs. Mid ruby colour, aromas are very attractive and floral, recalling fresh blackberries and red cherries. Palate is medium bodied, with intense, pure, fruity mid-palate, fine texture and a balanced, lively, gently-tannic finish.
