2015 Domaines François Lurton Les Hauts de Janeil Syrah-Grenache

Estate: Domaines François Lurton

Region: Vin de Pays d'Oc, Languedoc Roussillon, France

Tasting Note:January 18, 2017

Medium ruby red with a dark core. Elegant nose with lots of perfumed notes like rose petals, and lavender. Over a half hour or so it started to open up with some savory herbs and soft red cherries. Low tannins (4/10) with balanced acidity. Very soft and elegant on the palate as well with more red cherries and slight tanginess before the finish. Day two the finish got a little metallic. Light body and dry medium finish. Very drinkable Syrah-based blend, not very complex but not flat either. Solid value for only $12.99.

Made of 80% Syrah and 20% Grenache.
