Northern Rhône Wine Region : The Land of the French Syrah
The Northern Rhône may not be the exact epicenter of where the first Syrah vine appeared (which supposedly is about 35 miles Southeast of this region), however it is the benchmark by which all other Syrah wines are measured.
Whether or not French Syrah is “the best” is entirely up to you, but one thing is for certain: The Northern Rhône produces Syrah very unlike other regions in terms of style.
It’s a fascinating region to try to understand. Beyond just reds, 3 other grapes are a big deal here: Viognier, Marsanne, and Roussanne.
