Matthieu Barret, 'Petit Ours', 2019, Côtes-du-Rhône Rouge AOC, France


Funky bottle, modern, and super fun. The ‘Petit Ours’ (little bear), is 100% Syrah (Shiraz) sourced from organically farmed vineyards and worked using biodynamic methods, in keeping with winemaker Matthieu Barret's philosophy. The fruit is sourced from different high quality Shiraz parcels around the village of Visan in the Northern Rhône area.

Very expressive, with blackberry and black cherry fruit aromas. Smooth, tight, juicy, and a bit of black pepper spice on the finish. This is a wonderful Shiraz and very special indeed.
