A tiny domaine of just over 2 hectares, but the terroir is good, including holdings in Chaillot, and the vines are very old. winemaking is Uber-traditionalist: no additives, indigenous yeasts, cement vat fermentation, no new oak, large casks, no destemming.

Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 95
"Vibrant, spice- and mineral-tinged dark berry and cherry aromas are complemented by suggestions of olive, licorice and pungent flowers. Energetic, appealingly sweet black and blue fruit and candied violet flavors deepen with air while a smoky mineral element adds lift and back-end cut. Velvety tannins add gentle grip to an impressively long, floral-driven finish that leaves a repeating floral note behind." -Vinous

What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...

2016 marks the debut vintage of Ludovic and Corinne’s “Pur Granit”—from a southeast-facing one-hectare parcel of selection massale Syrah, planted between 2008 and 2011, in the vineyard of Saint-Pierre at around 380 meters altitude. The combination of high altitude and pure granite soil (hence the name) yields a taut, racy Cornas of remarkable focus and mineral purity. This 2016, while marginally less strapping and profound than the “Terre Brulée” below, offers penetrating spicy aromatics and intense stoniness on the palate, with a sense of real concentration that is remarkable given the vines’ youth. Somewhat in the vein of Gilles’ “Nouvelle R,” this energetic and vivacious wine offers a slightly more easygoing counterpart to the flagship wine below.
