Description

Made from 100% Syrah, this Crozes-Hermitage is a deep ruby, almost purple colour in the glass followed by an intense nose of berry fruit such as blackberry, raspberry, and blackcurrant. The palate follows the nose with plenty of berry fruit wrapped with complex fresh herb flavours of thyme and sage. This wine is fermented and aged in concrete vats and no oak is used, this gives the wine a unique texture in combination with the rounded smooth tannins that carry into the finish. Best enjoyed alongside grilled red meats or poultry or with mature cheeses. 12.5%ABV. Best enjoyed now or until winter 2026.

Soon after joining Delepine et Chapoutier in 1897.  Marius Chapoutier soon took over the business after his partners retired and purchased the new estate of M. Chapoutier at the base of the Hermitage Hill in 1929. Since then, the generations of family have maintained and worked the estate converting the property to full biodynamic practices as of 1990. As of 1998, the family have branched out to not only vineyards throughout France but the wine world with locations in Portugal, Germany and even Australia. Today Mathilde and Maxime Chapoutier continue to share the philosophy and vision based on the concept of terroir made by Marius Chapoutier that made the name one of the most well-known names in French win
