2018 Domaine des Chirats Syrah

Jeff Cohn Cellars on Apr 20, 2023

94 – The 2018 is black as night to the rim of the glass and back. Aromatics of blackberry/black cherry pie filling ooze from the glass, followed by fresh pencil shavings, brioche and savory notes of wild Herbes de Provence, and a hint of cedar. Full-bodied, but not heavy on the palate, the Rockpile minerality carries this wine from the incredibly rich and giving front palate to the exotic mid-palate that showcases black fruits, black licorice, and touch of charcuterie. So rich, so intense, so elegant, and in the end, so magical.
