2010 Monier Perreol, Saint-Joseph Rouge, Rhone Valley, France.
The second wine from Monier, the 2010 Monier Perreol, Saint-Joseph is a deep and pleasure filling Syrah of the highest order and is a killer deal for a great Northern Rhone gem. This 2010 Monier Perreol shows pure terroir from nose to finish with violets, blueberry, cassis, cherry liqueur and boysenberry layers with white pepper, truffle, earth, game and licorice all adding complexities and interest along the way. Wow, I am really falling for these Syrah wines from 2009, 2010 and 2011 vintages, I can’t remember 3 years in a row as fantastic as these for the Northern Rhone areas with Saint-Joseph, Hermitage, Crozes and Cornas, along with Cote-Rotie, all are rocking with fantastic Syrah wines, and many are coming in at great prices too. If it was every time to get your Syrah on, this is it! Another sublime selection imported by Kermit Lynch…
