Vineyard

Crozes Hermitage by size is the most important cru of the Northern Rhône. The vineyards are situated on the plain below the surrounding hills where the soils are made up of granite and alluvial deposits left by the Isère river (clay and gravel). They select the grapes from a small group of trusted grape growers with whom they have been working with for many years.

Vinification

Vinification is very hands-on with regular ploughing of the soils, de-leafing and green harvest during the year. The grapes are hand harvested at full maturity. Grapes are then de-stemmed and crushed. The maceration last 15 days in stainless steel vats at a medium temperature (26°C – 28°C) in order to preserve primary fruit aromas. The wine is then aged in 100 year old oak vats and concrete vats for 12 months before bottling.

Food pairing

Enjoy with duck breast, veal, pork chops, soft cheeses or even ice cream with chocolate & star anise sauce.
