Matthieu Barret Black Flag Syrah 2017
A 7th generation winemaker with a deep knowledge of wine theory from time learning his craft in Beaune to working under his grandfather in the Rhone. Matthieu makes complex, velvet-like wines that contrast his slightly comical labels just perfectly.
This is one hundred percent syrah, from a spot in Ardeche, central France. It is full flavoured, with dark berry fruits and a lingering perfumed finish. Although it is called Black Flag it is more like Henry Rollins spoken word. Delicious and fun.
