Les Méribets comes from 8 Syrah parcels (some based on granite, others on clay), aged for 10 months in a mixture of not-new barrels (80%) and tank (20%), to guard the bright fruitiness that Anthony aims for with this wine. Deep ruby colour, the nose is incredibly attractive, recalling freshly picked red cherries. This is medium-to-full bodied, with ample flesh, crunchy fruit flavours and good structure. Everything is perfectly placed here: it has vibrancy, finesse and a gentle bite of ripe tannins to finish (for drinking 2018-2022+).
