From the Crozes-Hermitage, Rhône wine region, Yannick Alléno Michel Chapoutier Guer-Van 2018 is a 100% Syrah with an incredible nose of pink florals, rich blackberry, smoked meat, wild herbs, sandalwood and pepper spice aromas and flavours plushy on the palate. Love the long and velvety finish. Beautifully crafted. Drink or hold.

Beautiful Syrah expression in this sensuous, velvety red wine, with finely balanced fragrant elements and notes of dark fruit and berries, garrique, pepper and sandalwood. Hard to put down the glass! Chapoutier always a treat for wine lovers.
