ABOUT THE WINE
The Flacher family has been making wine in the northern Rhone since 1806. Gilles is now managing an estate of 7 hectares, mainly in the Saint-Joseph appellation. Their wines are all from single-vineyard sites situated in and around the commune of Charnas, on the western banks of the Rhone. The majority of the vineyards are on terraced slopes, making mechanisation impossible, and most vineyard work continues to be done by hand.

TASTING NOTES
Very dark in colour. There is a swirl of oak, dark chocolate, and a touch of sweet blackberries on the nose. 50% new oak; prominent but not overwhelming. The palate holds sleek black fruit that lingers juicily on the finish.

FOOD PAIRING
Perfect with a dry aged ribeye, slow roasted lamb shoulder and venison.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
A standout staff-favourite; high-quality and supremely enjoyable.
