Syrah is the only red grape allowed in the Northern Rhône crus and can create magical wines bursting with spice and power. These can, in time, develop into wines which display a rather dank, animal character which, at best, need informed appreciation and can, at worst, be quite unappetising. Grenache is less renowned. There isn&#8217;t a village which insists on its sole use. And for very good reason. It can be a weed in vine terms, producing huge quantities of dilute grapes which lack structure and depth. It does, however, come into its own when nature and the viticulturalist work in harmony. With old vines, brutal pruning and tough soils, the vine&#8217;s flamboyance is restricted and the resulting grapes should be as fiercely concentrated as possible.Concentration of the Syrah may not only mean powerful, high coloured fruit and aromatic notes of violet and pepper, but also dangerously high tannins.

The grape provides alcohol, low tannin and rich perfume in his blend but the introduction of 20 – 35% of other varietals adds other nuances to aid complexity. Many other producers feel that Syrah is the next most important part of the recipe, but Brunier thinks that it should only take precedence over other varieties when the vintage tells him so. In a good year, Mourvèdre can be a fillip to the relative austerity of the Syrah with its back-slapping, tarry fruit adding colour, structure and antioxidant properties to the blend. As Châteauneuf is pretty well the northern limit for ripening Mourvèdre, its slow development can make it susceptible to late rains and subsequent dilution, rendering it useless in a top-class wine.Michel Chapoutier&#8217;s Châteauneuf-du Pape, by contrast, has the peculiarity – especially in an appellation which allows the use of 13 grape varieties – of being made solely from Grenache. And there is no better example than his &#8216;Barbe Rac&#8217;, where 90-year-old vines struggle through stoney soils to produce sublime concentration, a deep ruby colour and a huge amount of alcohol.

The much-heralded &#8216;trio&#8217; of great vintages – 1998, 1999 and 2000 – illustrate the point about variation. This was certainly a marvellous run but the years were very</p>
<p>different. Although each was opulent, 1998 favoured Grenache while 1999 was Syrah&#8217;s turn. If anything, they were very similar to their counterparts exactly a decade ago. An overview would indicate that the top 1998 wines are big, broody and muscular and will need time to develop their classic styles. The 2000 vintage, on the other hand, is hugely generous with gutsy, forward fruit, and the 1999 wines fall somewhere between the two, with a mouth-watering quality which is beautifully cut with acidity and tannin in all the right proportions.</p>
