Bonnefond Syrah 2016
Robert Parker calls the Bonnefond Domaine “among the finest in the appellation,” and Vinous’s Josh Raynolds notes Bonnefond’s style as “refined” and “extroverted.” We have long marveled at their ability to achieve wines that are at once rich, mouthfilling, and lively. They have all the dark, meaty characteristics of Syrah, but with unusual lift and grace.
The 2016 Syrah “Sensation du Nord” from Bonnefond is, as one taster at the warehouse last weekend put it, “highly drinkable.” The nose is spiced and expressive, with notes of blackberries, tapenade, black pepper, and game. The mouth is beautifully balanced — at 12.5% alcohol it’s elegant and long, with dense plum fruits and graceful minerality.
