Throughout the year, the planets were perfectly aligned: no frost, winter rains to replenish the soil and a generous summer sunshine without excessive heat. These ideal climatic conditons resulted in very healthy grapes and an excellent sanitary state. A remarkable vintage as much by the quality of the berries as by the duration of the harvest !

Grape Varieties: 

100% Syrah.

Terroir: 

The Syrah grapes for this Crozes Hermitage are sourced from several terroirs, including the quaternary terraces around Mercurol and the colluvium and sandy plane of "Les Chassis".

Winemaking: 

The grapes are destemmed and crushed. Fermentation, which is strictly temperature-controlled to preserve the fruit and aromatic freshness, took place in tank and lasted for around 20 days. The wine was then racked off to undergo malo-lactic fermentation before maturing another 8 months in tank. Vegan wine.

Tasting notes: 

Very elegant with subtly grilled notes, our Crozes Hermitage offers flavours of white pepper and fresh plum in a beautiful finesse. Long and well-balanced on the palate.

Service & food pairing suggestions: 

It pairs nicely with a Basque chicken, cold cuts or also a Piperade (typical Basque dish).
Best served at 14-16°C
Enjoy it now and over the next 6 to 8 years.

We have chosen the name « Saint Pierre » as a reference to the oldest monument of the department, the “Saint Peter tower”, which proudly overlooks the village of Serves sur Rhône, on the Crozes Hermitage appellation.
