"Vigne Haute" is 100% Syrah from his oldest vines on an elevated section of his vineyard. Rare and not made very often - There are aromas of wild cherry, blackberry and juicy plum, lifted with hints of Asian spice then crushed rock and purple flower tones filtering through the primary fruit notes like with Herve Souhaut. It’s deeply vinous and brooding on the nose in a very alluring way.
The pure, rich fruit flows onto the palate resonating black berry, plum and wild cherry fruits enter with weight and plenty of presence and the wine finishes with a earthy, crushed rock and berry flourish with lighter wafts of violets and pepper. Brilliant. - Andrew Guard
