Father and son Philippe and Lionel Faury work in the heart of St. Joseph, producing Syrahs of great purity and elegance. Unlike other producers in the region who have strayed from traditional winemaking, they avoid large amounts of new oak in the cellar and aim for balanced wines that represent the classic style of the Northern Rhone. Peppery and meaty, this old vines bottling has some serious complexity but maintains a lovely freshness and delicacy.
