The Story

Blend: Syrah 100%

Vineyard: In Bennett Valley on a warm hillside spot in a cool area.

Soil: Volcanic mélange, clay and rocks

Winemaking: Single cluster per shoot. Three field selections. Picking by cluster by cluster, berry per berry. Native yeasts. Ageing 14 months French oak from artisan coopers

This wine is made from an exceptional hillside vineyard located in Bennett Valley, where natural conditions are ideal for growing Syrah. Handcrafted by using classical winemaking techniques of Vallée du Rhone, this wine reveals a complex and spicy bouquet. Named after the famous culinary bundle to honor our first relative who emigrated from France to the USA, Abel Pierre Aimé Coutanceau, who was, by profession, an accomplished chef, it is the ‘Garnished Bouquet’ or ‘Bouquet Garni.’

Intense violet, black cherry, leather and spicy flavors (white pepper and clove), rich and concentrated with a lingering spicy finish. Will age gracefully for several decades.

Vintage 2014

94 points by Robert Parker's Wine Advocate / Robert M. Parker Jr.

"Morlet makes one Syrah from a 1,000-foot elevation vineyard in Bennett Valley. This is 100% destemmed and is very Côte-Rôtie-like, even though there is no cofermented Viognier in the blend. The 2014 Syrah Bouquet Garni shows wonderful lychee nut, peppery, meaty notes with black raspberries, blackberries, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel with good acidity, olive tapenade and a long, heady finish. This is just a beauty – sexy, lush and best drunk over the next decade." (RP) (10/2016)
