Get excited because this wine has "blockbuster" written all over it. A quaffable yet serious wine that renders its Syrah component with exceptional elegance and purity. Built primarily from young-vines Syrah with a splash of Mourvèdre and tiny sprinklings of old Rhône varieties like Picpoul Noir, Vaccarèse, Muscardin, and Counoise, Energie is vinified and aged in a combination of cement and steel tanks for one year with no added sulfites. The long but gentle infusion-method of extraction gives this wine great clarity of line, with pure, ringing acidity and a tasteful spiciness that speaks more of the Northern Rhône than the frequently coarse Syrah of these southerly zones; its name could hardly be more apt.
