Syrah Léone

Coteaux du Languedoc AOP

France - Languedoc

Marlène Soria's work is unique in the Languedoc.

Her wines are inseparable from the will and charisma of their creator. Mysterious, magical, sometimes inexplicable, they impose a stylistic unity and a capacity to age, especially the whites, true UFOs for the region. The Oro cuvée, made from rolle, roussanne and viognier, aged for almost ten years in vats and bottles and which has been produced on the heights of Saint-Pargoire since the beginning of the 1990s, is as limited as it is coveted. The reds, on the other hand, are quite tightly woven, even hard. Dominated by a solar syrah from very low yields, they are aged for a long time in the cellar in order to civilise their tannins (a minimum of two years in vats, doubled by the same amount of time in the bottle).

Old vintages are a must!

This cuvée is made from Syrah (and a touch of Grenache), this bottle is the marvel of the estate!
Very long maturation, mainly in vats and a quarter in tuns.

Grape varieties :

90% syrah and 10% grenache noir.

Tasting notes:

The approach is very sweet on candied, ripe fruit, especially raspberry. Liquorice is felt in the background. On the palate, the fruit is very present, the tannins are refined by the long ageing in oak casks, suggesting a beautiful evolution over time. A slight mineral note brings the right freshness, confirming the beautiful balance of this wine.
This wine is already 10 years old and shows exemplary maturity!
