Stéphane Montez's family have been growing grapes in the Northern Rhône for ten generations and today have vineyards in Condrieu, Côte Rôtie and Saint-Joseph. 'Cuveé du Papy' is made in honour of his grandfather. Drive a little further south from Côte Rôtie and Condrieu and you come to the equally spectacular, less famous and therefore less expensive wines of St Joseph. Still, in the Northern Rhône, this 100% Syrah spent 24 months in 600-litre barrels known as 'demi-muids'.

Named after Stéphane’s father, Antoine, when in 1989 he became a grandfather or ‘Papy’, this wine has been lovingly created from a selection of the best grapes, from the best vineyards, using the best barrels. The purity of Northern Rhône Syrah and the delicate perfume of violets shine through. Stunningly juicy, fine, impressively concentrated dark fruit nose seasoned with toasty oak and the distinctly classic Northern Rhone character of smoky bacon.

Try with roast red meats and mature hard cheeses.

2015 Vintage - 91 Points Robert Parker

Dominated by brooding dark fruit and black olives, the 2015 Saint-Joseph Cuvee du Papy is a full-bodied, concentrated wine that seems a bit closed at the moment. Hints of allspice, clove and violets emerge with air, so decant it if drinking it in the near term, or just wait for bottle age to work its magic, as it seems to have all the ingredients to come out on the other side of its current funk.
