100% Syrah. Arriving in the village of Mauves from the south, one first passes Domaine Pierre Gonon, then Jean-Louis Chave and finally Coursodon, all within a few hundred yards of each other. It’s a stellar trio of vignerons. Coursodon has a fiercely loyal European clientele that always snatches up their user-friendly, but stealthily ageworthy wines as soon as they are offered, meaning that the wines are often sold out of everything just a couple of months after release. Luckily, we’ve managed to snag some bottles of their excellent Silice, which is everything you want in a Northern Rhône Syrah. This is a domaine to watch out for!
