Domaine Faury

The Faury family has vineyards in some of the northern Rhones most prestigious appellations. Cote Rote. Condrieu. Saint Joseph. But it is a simple syrah from their vineyards atop a granite plateau in Saint Joseph that we greet with the greatest excitement each year. Not only does it provide a window into the style of the vintage, it is the illustration in liquid form of the Faury's confident walk between rusticity and elegance. Lionel Faury, with father Philippe never far from his side, does it the right way. As the Faury's importer Kermit Lynch puts it, "There’s a real attention to detail here, and nothing is done in haste.  Every method used encourages the grape towards greatness with the ultimate respect for its fragility." Those already familiar with the Domaine Faury Syrah will be excited to learn the 2012 vintage has just landed. For the uninitiated, this vintage is bright and approachable with just the right play between rock, fruit, and flower. Domaine Faury IGP Collines Rhodaniennes Syrah 2012 $23
