With some big shoes to fill Alain Verset works the same vineyards his father and uncle before him managed for more than half a century.
Syrah is a synonym of Shiraz and Cornas is one of the few appellations where it is grown to the exclusion of all other varieties, with good reason.
Producing only about 500 cases of wine per annum, Alain's wines are eagerly sought by canny collectors. Whole bunch ferments with natural yeast, maturation in large format vessels produce wines with satin like tannins and a savoury edge. Grab one while you can!
