Young and talented winemaker, Matthieu Barret inherited Domaine du Coulet from his grandfather in 1998. His grandfather, who created the domaine after World War II, used for several years to sell the grapes to famous winemakers such as Chapoutier or Delas.
Ever since Matthieu took the helm of the estate and began Domaine du Coulet, he has worked in an organic and biodynamic way. The domaine maintains extremely high standards and since 2002 has been certified biodynamic by ECOCERT and also a member of BIODYVIN. Matthieu continues to evolve as a winemaker while only using natural methods to allow micro-soils to develop and to personalize the wines.They only use all natural yeasts that form on the grapes and use very little sulfur-only 2 g/hl at bottling. Matthieu’s wines are about purity of fruit, distinct minerality and pronounced terroir expression.
This cuvée comes from a vineyard plot at the foot of the hills of Cornas. Matthieu Barret has given this Syrah a deliciously fruity style by maturing it for 13 months in 400-litre barrels previously used for six vintages.
"dark red colour; blackberry features in a softly fruited nose that bears a hum of violets. The palate is juicy, upfront, gives raspberry, mixed fruits, streams along well, drinks solo, ends on an aromatic note of red berry"
