Domaine Eric Rocher Le Terroir Champal St. Joseph Syrah
Classic Northern Rhône Syrah and Viognier are made here. The biodiversity of Eric's high altitude St. Joseph estate enables strictly non-interventionist viticulture and the low-yielding vines reach deep into the granite soils, producing classic flavors of black olive and gamey meats.
Perfectly nice and correct Saint-Joseph, with darker, anise-tinged fruit, iron, etc., in a very sleek frame. Well balanced and structured for near term drinking
With its delicate flavors, lamb is a great choice for the lighter style of Syrah. Try Lamb Shawarma or Gyros or, if you’re preparing it yourself, play with your spice rack to magnify the natural flavors in Syrah of allspice, clove, and mint. (Vegetarian option: brined and grilled eggplant)
