South-facing terraced vines on Coteau de Semons, in Tupin-Semons commune. “Bassenon” is not the district but the stream at the foot of the hill.
Tasting Notes: An elegant bouquet that mixes Syrah’s red berry fruits with Viognier’s floral character (violets). Elegant, fresh and airy on the palate. Subtle yet prominent tannins.
Food pairing suggestion: Meat with a delicate yet characterful texture (e.g. roast quail with spice bread and prunes).
Grape Varieties: Syrah, Viognier
