Producer Note
This family Domaine, located right at the heart of Crozes-Hermitage, was set up in
2006. It is run by Edgar and Jocelyne Girard and their son Sebastien. They produce
top quality wines by combining traditional winemaking techniques and modern
technology. The wines are produced organically with minimal sulphur. Their wines
are certified organic from the 2012 vintage.
Vineyard
The grapes come from old, low-yielding vines, of more than 35 years old. The
vineyard is cultivated organically. The clay-limestone soils with an abundance of
pebbles, provide good heat retaining properties. The vineyard is undergoing
conversion to biodynamic status.
Winemaking
The wines were produced organically. A four-day cold soak was followed by a
temperature controlled fermentation, with several 'pigeages' or cap submersions, to
extract flavour and colour. The vinification involved minimal sulphur use. The juice
was extracted naturally without pressing at warm temperatures. A long postfermentation
maceration took place, then the wine was transferred to oak barrel
where it underwent malolactic fermentation and maturation for 12 months.
Tasting Note
Lovely and vibrant Syrah character with a substantial and dense palate and great,
well sustained flavour and length. Fine tannins and loads of potential for
development. Northern Rhône Syrah at its best expression.
Serving Suggestion
This intense and stylish wine is ideal with red meat, game, poultry dishes served with
a rich sauce and cheese.
