St Joseph Les Larmes du Pére Alain Paret 2015/16
A wine which justifies its appellation in quality (unlike so many), Les Larmes du Père has subtle aromas of blackcurrants and raspberries, which develop into leather and liquorice as the wine ages. The palate is full bodied and spicy, with supple and round tannins, typical of ripe Syrah.

Domaine Alain Paret is based in the Northern Rhone, where the top quality region of St Joseph is found.
‘Les Larmes du Pere’ means ‘Tears of the Father’ and could be in tribute to Alain himself who sadly died in 2013. He has been succeeded by his son running the winery.
This is a big deep spicy wine made from 100% Syrah, in this serious and complex Rhone red.
