Domaine de l'Echevin is run by the father-son team of Francois and Adrien Fabre. Using a combination of modern and traditional technology, the two have created an impressive winery the uses gravity to minimize time, labor, and the use of energy. Surrounded by forests and olive groves, the vineyards are protected by a natural barrier from neighboring wine producers that still use pesticides. This syrah-dominant Cotes-du-Rhone Villages is dark, with a sturdy structure of firm tannins. Notes of wild blackberries, cedar, sweet and peppery spice.
