Tasting Notes

Each year, Laurent, the head winemaker, names the best-performing winemaker at the cellar after his most premium Crozes-Hermitage cuvée. In 2016, congratulations to Valerie! This 100% Syrah from the Crozes-Hermitage appellation boasts a rich and profound aroma, featuring hints of black fruits, green peppers, and violets. On the palate, it offers a delicate, ethereal, and enduring experience, with notes of raspberry relish, blood orange, and a subtle touch of charred wood on the finish.

Decanter Magazine

Fresh and curious nose of iodine, bottled ink, cherry stones and blackberries. Beautifully fine, close-knit warp of tannins, like fine Italian fabric. Perfectly balanced, beautifully drinkable, you could never tire of this. Emotionally interesting Crozes, so fine, so light and effortless, but such character. It would put some premier cru Burgundies to shame. Organic.
