Crozes Hermitage - 2014 Domaine

This wine is the backbone of the Estate, and is built around the three main identities of the Crozes-Hermitage appellation: La Roche de Glun, Mercurol and Pont de l'Isère. From this spectrum of plots of Syrah, the wine reflects the identity of the vintage, in the true spirit of the Crozes-Hermitage appellation: fruit, brilliance, elegance... what else!

 

Vinification

Leaf-stripping around bunches for optimal exposure to sunshine, before late, manual harvesting.

No industrial yeast used during vinification and the berries are destemmed. Fermentation temperatures are increased progressively from 20° to 30°, for optimal extraction, and are then maintained at this level. On average, the vatting period lasts for three weeks with twice-daily pumping over, where we seek to cover the whole marc cap. Wine is matured in vats in order to maintain fruitiness and prevent the influence of wood.

TASTING
