Domaine Merlin
France > Northern Rhône > Saint-Joseph

This Syrah from the winemakers at Domaine François Merlin is a particularly charming and fruit-forward wine and a great representation of a Northern Rhône red. It is entirely destemmed prior to fermentation in wooden vats, before seeing 12 months ageing in barriques. 

16.5/20 - Tasted blind. Cocoa and cherry on the nose. The palate has some firm tannins and a chewy mid palate – the fruit is there and underneath the finely tuned tannins. A ripe finish – needs a year or two to integrate but should knit together nicely. - Alistair Cooper MW,

91/100 - Liquorice, lavender and rosemary, this has freshness and energy, though the tannins are very soft and ripe. Good concentration and otherwise well balanced. All destemmed, matured for 12 months in barriques and demi-muids, 20% new. - Matt Walls, Decanter


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!
