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".
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.
Note de dégustation:
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 & accords:
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.
