The opinion of the sommelierA beautiful wine that pays tribute to Syrah, a grape variety I particularly like. It reminds me of my years spent at La Tour d’Argent where I had fun to pair this grape variety with different duck recipes. This wine, with the aromas of jammed fruit and the typical peppery nuances of the syrah, will sublimate a roasted duckling. A match that you’ll not forget !
TerroirCrozes-Hermitage is a wind-swept place. The vine, dry and ventilated by the wind, is thus better protected from certain diseases. Moreover, when it comes from the north, the Rhone wind brings a nice freshness allowing the vine to reach peaks of sugar richness while keeping good acidity balance.
Grape varietySyrah is the only black variety allowed to make red wines in Crozes-Hermitage. This expressive grape with peppery notes is a fragile variety that is particularly prone to dryness. The temperate climate of Crozes-Hermitage therefore suits perfectly our beautiful queen Syrah.
VintageRemember that the 2015 vintage was a great success everywhere in France even if each region had its specificities and nuances. In northern Rhône Valley, the vintage was just perfect : the sun, colouring the skins all summer long, allowed a beautiful ripeness of the grapes and was accompanied by an unexpected wind that has driven diseases away. To crown it all, miraculous rains resumed the vegetation around mid-August. What else ?
