The wine for which Pierre is best known, from his original walled vineyard planted in 1981 – the Clos de Cuminaille – this 2018 is outstanding. The nose is pure, fine and focused, with ripe red and black cherries, richly concentrated. You can taste the high elevation of the Syrah in this wine: it is vibrant, racy, airy Saint-Joseph, with floral-fruit character, lively freshness and a wonderfully silky finish. Great value, “proper” wine, with depth, good structure and super length (try to resist drinking it all in its youth – for drinking 2020-2028+).
