OURNAC FRÈRES PETITE SYRAH 2017
OURNAC FRÈRES PETITE SYRAH 2017 - DOMAINE COUDOULET
Eager to explore his terroir in order to discover new products, Pierre-André Ournac has planted over 20 different grape varieties in the past 30 years. The Petite Syrah is an old French grape variety originating from the Drôme. A cross between Syrah and Peloursin, it was exported to Australia under the name Durif as well as to the vineyards of California.
This cuvée is the result of a collaboration between a Portuguese trainee and Pierre-André Ournac when they decided to practice the so-called integral vinification (in open barrels) using as little input as possible.
COLOUR: Mild colour with hints of dense and deep purple.
NOSE: Black cherry and blackcurrant aromas with a toasty note of barrel ageing.
PALATE: Full with rich tannins, a lot of substance in the mouth. Sustained black fruit and spices with a nice freshness that raises the mid-palate before going on a long finish. A seductive and elegant wine.
FOOD PAIRING: Grilled meat, cheese, red meat or stuffed vegetables like zucchini and tomatoes.
