M. Chapoutier Domaine Tournon Shay’s Flat Shiraz 2014
- Medium bodied
It’s just the nature of these crazy times that not all plans work out. We’ve gotten our hands on some of M. Chapoutier’s excellent Shay’s Flat shiraz that was meant for the USA. For whatever reason, the deal fell through and we were there to pick it right up. We’ll spare a few seconds lamenting the lost vinous enjoyment of the American wine drinkers, but not too long. This is single vineyard Pyrenees shiraz with seven years of age on it. Lucky us! After a year in French oak, the wine was bottled and sent to cellar. It’s drinking so well now, expressing cherry, blackberry, tobacco and licorice. When something this tasty falls right into our laps, we’re stoked to share it with you!
“For an aged Shiraz, this is drinking really well now and still has plenty of life ahead. This wine is silky smooth from the age and is also packed with black fruits, spice and liquorice.” – Seb, Wine Dealer
“Bright and focused shiraz with berry, asphalt and basil-leaf aromas and flavors. Medium to full body. Firm and polished tannins and a flavorful finish. Shows tightness and focus. Soft texture. Drink now or hold. Screw cap.”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.
