This cluster of vineyards lies due north of Côte Rôtie, on the left bank of the Rhône, below the village of Seyssuel. Aspect and the schist soils are very similar to those of Côte Rôtie. Although little known now, the slopes were greatly prized as far back as Roman times. Now a small group of Rhône vignerons is reigniting interest and seems likely to win official appellation status soon. L’Ame Soeur translates as Soulmate (although we prefer Soul Sister) and this 2017 is made from 98% Syrah with 2% Viognier (co-planted). It is a splendid wine, with deep, opaque purple colour and beautifully floral, complex aromas of black fruits, violets and a hint of fresh thyme. Palate is seductive, rich and velvety. This wine has great depth and concentration, with structure and lovely freshness (for drinking 2022-2030+).
