2011 Alexandre Sirech "Le Deux Terroirs" Red Wine
Alexandre Sirech has revived a tradition that pre-dates the Bordeaux AO system. The wines were called Le Hermitagee, blending Right Bank Merlot with Southern Rhone Syrah. Fascinating concept, and one Alexandre made his 21 century interpretation that has a smooth, lush swagger about it. Selecting fruit from vineyards that great pedigree. The varieties were made for each other. Merlot gives the wine is backbone and soft red fruit tannins and the Syrah adds the “seasoning” of spice pepper and dark fruits. A truly delicious wine with great textural qualities. Check it out. You will be excited!!
