Having worked with Northern Rhone titans Francois Viallard and then Yves Cuilleron, Christophe Curtat set up his own domaine in 2004 with a small holding in Saint-Joseph. Previously nomadic using friends wineries he has now set root in an old fruit and veg warehouse in Tournan. Production has grown over the years to include some Crozes-Hermitage and this super IGP Syrah. The simple IGP Ardèche on the label belies the quality in the bottle, and the contents do justify the high price. Sourced from a steep organically farmed, granite based vineyard in an area which until 1978 was part of St-Joseph. The vines are incredibly old some over 100 years of age, fermented with its natural yeasts and with the minimal use of Sulphur then aged in large old oak casks. Though drinking well, I think this will keep too, witness a bottle I drank over three day, yes it does happen. At first easy dark fruit rounded tannins with the classic white pepper and spice of a classic northern Rhone, day 2 it was superb with the fruit unfurled from the fine tannins of the previous day and day 3 with just a hint of oxidization but still impressive.
