Montez is one of the top Cote Rotie producers, a tiny region that represents the holy grail for lovers of fine-boned Syrah. This wine comes from the hills of blonde gneiss south of Ampuis. The ridiculously steep granitic slopes, battered for much of the year by the interminable mistral wind, make this a mad and difficult place to grow grapes. This stubborn combination of soil and climate compels in the glass with mystery, allure and great depth. This is a relatively decadent, but fruit pure Cote Rotie with lots of dark fruits and liquorice, and subtle tones of spice, game and wild herbs. The density of fruit belies a wine of great finesse and length. 94% Syrah & 6% Viognier, all destemmed.
