In 1994 Importer Eric Solomon visited the Vignerons d'Estezargues and met a young, passionate director/winemaker named Jean-Francois Nicq. By the end of the day, they had decided on a custom bottling of old vine syrah from one of their best parcels, Andezon. This opaque-black, blockbuster Syrah could have been a top Northern Rhone wine, a la Cornas. What a find! Previously sold in bulk (vinous suicide) to a very famous producer in the Rhone Valley, Eric jumped at the opportunity and over two燿ecades later it remains one of the core items for Eric Solomon Selections.
