Domaine Novis Le Prieur St Joseph 2019
Beautiful Northern Rhône Syrah with an elegant spicy edge, coupled with ripe black fruit.
What we say
An elegant wine from this well respected Northern Rhône appellation. Perfumed red fruit characters with a spicy edge combine well with beautifully integrated oak. Medium-bodied with wild strawberry flavours, followed by rounded tannins and a touch of dryness on the finish. This Syrah is approachable and enjoyable at a young age, best decanted for the complete experience, but will age well too. A great wine for roasted lamb or saucisse Lyonnaise
What they say
The wine has a deep red colour with purplish reflection. The nose is essentially characterised by red fruit (blackcurrant, raspberry, Kirchée cherry) it has a spicy peppery side with a hint of violet. The palate is intense and persistent.

About the producer Domaine Novis
This vineyard is located on the slopes of the village Saint Pierre de Buf, which provides an ideal geographical location for our white and red grape varieties. The terroir is truly exceptional and the vines have to break through the granite pebbles that make up the soil. Their attempts and efforts to survive in these harsh conditions give the wine an aromatic richness, full of tannins, and a palette of subtle perfumes. For the reds, they will contain hints of blackcurrant, kirsch, raspberry and sometimes shades of leather and liquorice. The whites have aromatic notes of fruit (yellow peach, apricot) and white flowers (acacia, hawthorn).
