Francois Villard L'Appel des Sereines Syrah 2017
Francois Villard started out his career in food and wine as a chef. He grew up between Vienne and Grenoble, in the French countryside. He made his first Condrieu in 1991, a whopping 400 bottles. Today, he’s working with 64 hectares total, of which he owns 40 hectares. He makes wine from Côte-Rôtie down to Saint Peray, and a little of everything between: four Condrieu, five Saint-Joseph (red and white), three Crozes-Hermitage, a Cornas, and four Vin de France (Marsanne-Roussanne, Viognier, and two Syrah).

Bottle ShopTasted and loved by our staff, this is made from younger vines of 100% Syrah from several villages including: Chavanay, Ardoix, Saint-Michel-sur-Rhône, and Verin, all with a decomposed granite soils. Bright, juicy and charming with lots of red and black fruits mingling with black pepper and red bell pepper, this is a wonderful little find from a northern Rhone specialist.
