$25 PER BOTTLE | FULL CASES OF SIX ONLY
Vinted by Domaine de La Baume, who have been producing wines on the south of France for well over 100 years, this 2021 release shows the benefits of a top vintage and a winemaking team who truly understand how to pack silky-smooth flavours into a bottle of wine. The super-premium heavyweight bottles promise a quality result, and that's exactly what shines through on the palate. Pillow soft, with rounded plump mouthfeel and loads of juicy characters on the palate, this is a perfect example of modern French Syrah that has been made to be immediately accessible in its youth. If you like French reds and are looking for a rock solid recommendation in the key $25 bracket, La Baume Syrah simply has to be at the top of your list.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit: "A stylish offering, the complex bouquet shows dark berry, toasted nut, cured meat and dried herb characters. The palate delivers sweet fruit flavours with spicy/savoury nuances, well framed by polished tannins, finishing persistent and satisfying."
