Philippe Faury’s vineyards are located in the northern fringe of Syrah country in the Rhône Valley, near the town of Ampuis. Faury is a Syrah specialist known for his outstanding Saint Joseph rouge, and his Syrah has a character similar to the wines of nearby Côte Rôtie. These are Syrahs of great finesse, loaded with perfume. This Vin de Pays is made from a few of his vineyards just outside the Saint Joseph appellation. You will be awed but not at all surprised by the quality, the pure pleasure, of this gorgeous bottle of wine.
