Domaine Julien Cecillon - Cornas Saint Pierre, Syrah 2019

$79.00

Cave Julien Cécillon was founded in 2011 and is the beloved project of winemakers Julien Cécillon and Nancy Kerschen. With vineyards in the appellations of Saint Joseph and Crozes-Hermitage in France’s Northern Rhone Valley, the estate is dedicated to producing elegant, terroir-driven wines.

100% Syrah – a Cornas coming from a tiny .25ha parcel biodynamically and organically farmed by a neighbor, called ‘Saint Pierre,’ at the very top of the village on pure granite soils and 26 year-old vines. The fermentation step is 10% whole cluster in stainless steel tanks; élevage is 18 months, in a combination of new oak barrels (400L) and neutral barrels (225L). An elegant interpretation of an otherwise wild, intense appellation.
