Anne Pichon Syrah/Grenache "Les Sauvage"

19.00

Marc Pichon purchased Domaine le Murmurium in the Cote de Ventoux village of Mormoiron in early 2008. It comprised 13 hectares of old vineyards on prime terroir adjacent to Chateau Pesquie. Murmurium is derived from latin meaning "The Buzzing Song of Bees", an old estate name which is honored by the crest on the Anne Pichon labels. Over the past two years Marc has acquired more old vineyards to bring the size of the domaine to 21 hectares. All the vineyards are cultivated using 100% organic practices without the use of any chemicals or pesticides and the soils are tilled manually. Additionally, all harvesting is done by hand and each varietal is vinified separately. The main goal at Murmurium is to maintain a style of rich, ripe and hand crafted wines through careful vineyard management, low yields and late harvesting. The grapes that create wine, 80% Syrah, 20% Grenache, are vinified separately -- the Syrah in stainless steel and the Grenache in cement tanks. The two are then blended together and aged for 12 months in stainless steel. This wine is full bodied, with velvety tannins and lots of dark berry fruits -- black cherries, spiced cranberries, and black raspberries. Also dry and mineral, it leaves a hint of earthiness on the lengthy finish.
