Although the two winemakers Francois Dauvergne and Jean-Francois Ranvier only founded in 2014, they managed to become one of the absolute top companies for Rhône wines within a few years. For Rhône fans, there is basically no passing - the excellent and exciting wines with an astonishingly good price-enjoyment ratio also inspire.
Wine Makers Notes
Our Crozes Hermitage comes mainly form vines planted on terraces with round pebbles mixed with red clay. It is composed at 100% by Syrah. The harvest started with a selection of the best plots in order to pick up the berries having the most freshness and fruit. Winemaking has been made at low temperature in order to preserve the aromas. We chose no ageing in oak barrels in order to keep all the fruitiness of the wine.
The colour is an almost purple deep red. The nose is dominated by black fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry), with a hint of red acidulated fruits (redcurrant) and violet. The palate is soft in the attack and followed by a powerful mid palate. The tannins are ripe and give a good structure which promises longevity to this young Crozes Hermitage.
