This Syrah from the winemakers at Domaine François Merlin is a particularly charming and fruit-forward wine and a great representation of a Northern Rhone red.


94/100 - Gorgeously fresh, aerial nose, brimming with violets and pounded blueberries. A touch of nutmeg adds to the scent. Smooth, rounded, and surprisingly sweetly approachable for a 2021 St-Joseph. Well balanced but very young - will need some time to come round. Wonderful energy, vibrancy and balance here, a real winner among 2021 St-Josephs. - Matt Walls, Decanter

18/20 - Tasted blind. Fascinating nose, cracked black pepper, clove, sandalwood and spice with a subtle ashy smoky note. Great purity of fruit on the palate, light and elegant but with great concentration. Really beautiful seamless tannins and fresh acidity that gives such energy through the wine. Very elegant, restrained and refined. Wonderful. - Alistair Cooper MW, JancisRobinson.com


A charming wine with an intense ruby colour. On the nose, an immediate sense of black cherry, raspberry, then violet with a spicy touch on the finish. The sensation in the mouth is supple and rounded with a very present fruitiness.
The vines, on the northernmost point of the Saint-Joseph appellation, are planted with Syrah on sandy soils at an altitude of 300 meters.
François Merlin is one of the most exciting names in the Northern Rhône today.
François recommends enjoying this alongside a slab of chocolate!
