2018 Saint-Joseph Rouge "Terra Nostra" (Barou, Domaine)

Domaine Barou, Saint-Joseph Rouge "Terra Nostra", Rhone Valley, France 2018

{biodynamic} 100% Syrah

CASSIS & BLACK PLUM, LEATHER & A WHISPER OF CHIMNEY SMOKE

Saint-Joseph is a mystifyingly sprawling appellation - a narrow 40 mile strip from north to south on the Rhone river’s right bank. As one might imagine, quality from domaine to domaine is not consistent, but some of the absolute best Northern Rhone “values" (we’re talking about sub-$100, here) can be found in various corners of the region. This is a noteworthy contender for the most distinctive Northern Rhone red we’ve carried. It tastes like the label might suggest – autumnal, colorful, romantic, and mysterious. This is masterful Syrah that’s every bit as generous as its Grenache-driven neighbors to the south and Pinot Noir colleagues to the north in Burgundy.

Serving suggestion: Duck bacon. Venison. Riceberry risotto (made with smoked gouda & smoked carrot slivers).

BLUEBERRY & RASPBERRY, SMOKED BLACK PEPPERCORNS & CACAO

The Barou estate in the Northern Rhône has been biodynamic and organic since 1975, producing cherries, apricots, and peaches as well as wines like this beautiful, bright red. These grapes are grown on the steep slopes of the northernmost part of the appellation, where some of the best expressions of Saint-Joseph come from. Fermented with wild yeasts and aged in old oak barrels, this Syrah is brimming with dark, vivid fruits and lively spice.

2019 Syrah "Petit Colorado" (Barou, Domaine)

Domaine Barou, Syrah "Petit Colorado", IGP Collines Rhodaniennes, Rhone Valley, France 2019

{biodynamic} 100% Syrah

BOYSENBERRY & CASSIS, VIOLETS & HERBS, LEATHER

From the northern reaches of the vertically sprawling Saint-Joseph appellation, this whole-cluster offering from Emmanuel Barou showcases a fresher, more youthful side of Syrah while retaining an earthy Northern Rhone mystique. Made somewhat in the image of the famous reds of Beaujolais, just on the other side of Lyon, spice, firm fruit, and gentle tannin punctuate this very versatile, food-friendly quaffer. What a candidate to take along for a picnic in the woods with a bucket of fried chicken – don’t skimp on the drumsticks!

Serving Suggestion: Fried chicken in the woods or spicy wings in front of your favorite television. Onion & mushroom soup w/ grated Gruyère & egg yolk.

2018 Viognier "La Bonne Étoile" (Barou, Domaine)

Domaine Barou, Viognier La Bonne Étoile", IGP Collines Rhodaniennes, Northern Rhone Valley, France 2018

{biodynamic} 100% Viognier

PLUMCOT & LEMON, CHAMOMILE & HIBISCUS

Saint-Joseph’s Domaine Barou finds its ten hectares at the northernmost extreme of the vertically sprawling appellation – at the southern crossroads with Condrieu, the majestic birthplace of Viognier. It’s no surprise that the estate owns land in Condrieu and that it also works with the fashionable yet somewhat elusive variety in the non-AOP countryside…to excellent effect. Swelling with the rich, ripe, exotic fruit and floral intensity that are Viognier’s claim to fame, this Condrieu understudy is distinctive, memorable, and a real treat.

Serving Suggestion: Baked trout w/ browned butter, almonds, lemon juice w/ white asparagus & capers. Rigotte & other creamy, full-flavored cheeses.
