"Bassenon" is produced from vineyards in the southernmost stretch of the Côte-Rôtie appellation. The wine contains 10% Viognier (allowed by AOC regulation), which lends the Syrah's smoky aromatics a lifted, floral quality while easing the tannic punch. This 2015 bears the mark of the vintage with its dark, concentrated character, spicy sandalwood and fresh-ground black pepper but the overwhelming impression is one of finesse wedded to a high-toned complexity with tannins in the background.
