"100% Syrah. Grapes are pressed with an old-style basket press and aged 24 months in 2-7 year-old barrels. Some stems are kept for vinification. 'Patou' is the top site south of the village (of Cornas) with decomposed granite and a rich soil that gives supple tannins and perfumed wines. The oldest vines are 100 years old!" —importer

Wine Anthology review:
The 2013 Patou comes from the family's very steep vineyard of the same name, located just south of the village of Cornas. Aged two years in oak, this 100% Syrah abounds in rich aromas of wild raspberry and tart cranberry, filled in with secondary notes of charred wood and incense. There's a lot going on, with the medium body allowing full appreciation of the layers and nuances without being overpowered by sheer weight. This is a luscious Syrah that really speaks to what the Cornas appellation is all about.
"This starts with beautiful pepper, singed chestnut leaf and sanguine notes, giving way slowly to a sturdy core of red currant and bitter plum fruit. Best from 2018 through 2028." —James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
