2019 Pierre Gonon Les Iles Feray Syrah
While still floral and pretty on the nose, the 2019 VdP de l'Ardeche Les Iles Feray Syrah is a bigger, more tannic wine than usual, with notes of black cherries. It's almost more Saint Joseph than a lithe charmer, being medium to full-bodied, plump and fleshy, with a long, lingering finish. Drink 2022 - 2030.
Joe Czerwinski - Wine Advocate (Feb 2022)
Bright and sharply focused on the nose and in the mouth, showing intense dark fruit character and building floral and spice elements. Shows a smoky mineral nuance on the long, nervy finish, which features supple tannins and a strong repeating floral note.
