Philippe Viret VdF "Energie" 2019

$19.99
Organically farmed (Cosmoculture), no added sulfites. Built primarily from young-vines Syrah with a splash of Mourv�dre and tiny sprinklings of old Rh�ne varieties like Picpoul Noir, Vaccar�se, Muscardin, and Counoise, "Energie" is vinified and aged in a combination of cement and steel tanks for one year with no added sulfur. The long but gentle infusion-method of extraction gives this wine great clarity of line, with pure, ringing acidity and a tasteful spiciness that speaks more of the northern Rh�ne than the frequently coarse Syrah of these southerly zones; its name could hardly be more apt.
