2010 "Les Hauts Granites"
We had the great pleasure to meet Stéphane Vedeau and taste his exquisite wines. Of course the wines got our attention because they are expressive, beautifully balanced and delicious, but we were a bit star struck by the man. He, like the greatest Burgundian producers, considers himself a shepherd, gently coaxing his wines from the earth to the bottle. Despite his hands-off approach, it is safe to say that his wines are steeped in his personality: they are intelligent, conservative and authentic. Real-deal Syrah.
The wiry and energetic Vedeau presents his wines with enthusiasm, confidence and charm. He is passionate, he is a perfectionist and like great winegrowers the world over, Vedeau is making wines that speak of their individual sites - that is what captured our attention.
A word to the wise: these wines are are made in tiny quantities, are still under the radar, and they drink above their price point. But they won't stay that way. Vedeau may be a relative newcomer to the North, but has already been tapped by the press for the wonderful, acclaimed Châteauneuf he makes. It is just a matter of time before they embrace his small Northern project as well. Without question, prices will go up and availability will go down. Very simply, put these wines in your cellar because Stéphane Vedeau is making them. It is reason enough.
