TASTING NOTE: John Livingstone-Learmonth of drinkrhone.com called Domaine du Murinais a \"domaine to follow. The wines went through a slightly technical phase in the early 2010s, but recently have given a very good expression of the free running dark fruits from the galet stone soils of Beaumont-Monteux.\" This Syrah was matured partly in concrete and partly in oak for 12 months. Pair it with prime rib. Price $ 29.95
Bottle Size 750 mL
