Domaine de Breseyme Rouge 2016 Brezeme
Located in Brezeme, this is another one of those liminal Rhone reds located at the southernmost extremeity of the northern Rhone, which has been overlooked despite its steep slopes and ideal soils. This domaine was recently purchased by Nicolas Jaboulet, with a scant four hectares under vine. Made entirely from syrah in an exuberantly aromatic style, this displays an exotic nose of black pepper, fresh roses, babaganoush and baked red plums alongside fine, chiselled tannins and vibrant freshness on the palate, with no heaviness or oakiness in sight. Pure syrah joy!
