Ripe, warm and generous on the nose with plum and cherry aromas and hints of dried fruits. Full bodied and richly flavoured with rich berry and plum fruit, supple tannins and a spicy finish, with the characteristic dry bite of good Amarone

Named after Stéphane’s father when, in 1989, he became a grandfather or ‘Papy’, this wine has been lovingly created from a selection of the best grapes. The purity of Northern Rhône Syrah and the delicate perfume of violets shine through. A nuanced and refined bottle to relax into and discuss -this is a grown-up wine.
Stéphane Montez's family have been growing grapes in the Northers Rhône for ten generations and today have vineyards in Condrieu, Côte Rôtie and Saint-Joseph. 'Cuveé du Papy' is made in honour of his grandfather. Drive a little further south from Côte Rôtie and Condrieu and you come to the equally spectacular, less famous and therefore less expensive wines of St Joseph. Still in the northern Rhône, this 100% Syrah spent 24 months in 600 litre barrels known as 'demi-muids'.
