Our wine

“Wine is like a child. I bring my child up – respecting him/her for who he/she is – and the result is that he/she remains determined and sincere in the exercise of life.”

 

 

HERMITAGE RED

Located on the land of Beaume and Péléat, my Hermitage vines, dutifully and lovingly tended, are over 40 years old and are rooted in a soil of loess. South-West facing, the plots enjoy abundant sunshine throughout the vegetative cycle, thus providing grapes with the raw material I require to bottle the much sought-after DNA of this mythical Hermitage hillside.

 

 

CROZES HERMITAGE WHITE

I love white Burgundy, and I seek the same signature from my Crozes-Hermitage whites. The vine duo Marsanne (70%) and Rousanne (30%) allow me, while respecting the balance of the vintage, to play on the complementarities of the two grape varieties, extracting a wine with a structural balance, between freshness and the elegance of fruit.

 

 

 

On the Chassis terraces, the former Rhône river bed has deposited a layer of river pebbles, marking the identity of the terroir and emblematic of the Crozes-Hermitage appellation. My Syrah have been growing here happily for over 50 years. For Le Rouvre, I select plots where the grapes produce deep, perfectly velvety tannins, for a wine with a marked identity and optimal ageing qualities.

 

 

CUVÉE 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!
