2022 Lionel Faury "Les Hautes Ribaudes" Syrah, Collines Rhodaniennes IGP, Rhone Valley, France

A Syrah that leaps out of the glass, as if ripe olives, violets, and an array of black fruits had been smashed together with a granite mortar and pestle, coating the palate like stone-ground blackberry pulp with each velvety sip.



Grapes are 80% de-stemmed. 10 day maceration in temperature-controlled cuves. Daily pump-overs and punch-downs. Malolactic fermentation in demi-muids. Aged for 6 months in 3 to 10 year old demi-muids.


Along the steep, narrow valley that traces the northern Rhône, the appellations of Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu and Saint-Joseph take their place among the great wines of France, and Domaine Faury is one of the region’s most artisanal producers. When Philippe Faury took over the domaine in 1979, the family was selling wine, peaches and cherries, and the bulk of their clientele was local. Over the years, Philippe expanded their holdings to over eleven hectares, and expanded sales to an international client base. In addition, he has shared his savoir faire with his son, Lionel. Since 2006,
Lionel has taken over the reins at Domaine Faury, though father and son still work side by side.
