Towards the end of the 1980’s, Pierre Clavel sought out ways to open up his Syrah and lighten their austere nature. He acquired some barrels from Chateau Angludét and breathed new life into the Syrah, opening them up and transforming them, with tender yet firm tannins, and without leaving any apparent wood in the wine…then Copa Santa was born!
