The Cuvée Shyrus is aged in 228ltr barrels, with 4 months in concrete tank and 6 months in bottle prior to release. Deep garnet in colour with violet hues. The nose is aromatic and complex with notes of black fruit compote, prune, blackberry and candied cherry. Good acidity on the palate with structured tannins and dark berry fruit followed by warming spice. The balanced finish shows terrific length and complexity.
Daniel, Bruno and Bruno`s nephew Guillaume Long run this 70-hectare estate in the foothills north of the distinctive Dentelles de Montmirail. The average vine age here is 35 years and the domaine was certified organic in 2009. The altitude of the estate and the shade provided by surrounding mountains, together with meticulous work to balance the ecosystem of the vineyard, means the grapes maintain a fresh, vibrant acidity despite the heat. In the cellar, great care is taken to produce balanced, elegant wines that reflect their terroir.
