Freshness, minerality and elegant texture are the character and the typicity of this vintage. Harmonious and particularly qualitative thanks to good weather conditions: a humid winter and dry spring combined with a warm to hot end of summer resulted in very healthy sanitary conditions in the vineyard. The maturation was slow but constant up to harvest time.

This Crozes Hermitage is made from Syrah grapes from soils of granite slopes, pebbles stones and terraces on the left bank of the Rhône River.

Winemaking: 

Destemmed and crushed. The fermentation lasts around 20 days with temperature control to preserve aromas. Wine is racked off and undergoes malolactic fermentation. Maturing in vats for 12 months. Ageing in bottle.

Tasting notes: 

Crimson colour with bright deep purple reflects. The nose develops liquorice and violet notes. The palate is smooth, lively with stewed black fruits flavours and a spicy finish.

Service & food pairing suggestions: 

It will pair nicely with brochette of beef marinated with spices. Enjoy it now and over the next 5 years.
