Syrah Rive Droite
Domaine Eric & Joel Durand - IGP Collines Rhodaniennes
Red,IGP Collines Rhodaniennes
Syrah 100%
The vineyard is owned by two brothers: Eric and Joël. Their vineyards cover 22 ha (8,5 ha of Saint Joseph, 9.5 ha of Cornas, 2 ha de St Peray, and 2 ha of Vin de Pays). They took over the family estate and started bottling our wine in 1991. They work hard to ensure their harvests will be fully expressive of the terroir. They love wines that have personality but are still delicate and elegant.
The grapes come from vines spread over the hillsides opposite Cornas and Saint-Joseph, in the north of the Northern Valley. The Syrah, which the winemakers call "Rive Droite", comes from vines situated on the right bank of the Rhone. It is an IGP that is more along the style of their Cornas than a typical IGP Syrah, so there is a lot of minerality.
The harvest is manual. During vinification, extraction is done by punching down every day for about 20 days. No ageing for this cuvée which is greedy, easy and fruity!
Tasting notes
A bouquet of blue fruits, violets and cherries for a lively mouth, ample but chiseled with a mineral, salivating even delicate frame that slices the explosive delicacy of fresh fruit. Superb introduction, it promises! Perfect to drink in your youth as an aperitif, on a charcuterie and cheese board or with grilled meats.
Food pairing
Perfect match with red meats, delicatessen.

The 2021 Syrah 'Rive Droite' delivers aromas of black raspberries and plums, which is woven together with spices, pepper, lavender and hints of iron. On the palate this is nicely balanced with medium body that is wrapped in a silky tannins. It displays a lovely touch of underlying acidity, which continues to provide a wonderful sense of freshness all the way through the racy finish. This is lovely wine to approach now, and should also hold up nicely in the cellar for the short-term.
