The appellation was initially applied only to the village and surrounding area of Crozes-Hermitage, on account of the notoriety won by several parcels of vineyards selected as Hermitage A.O.C. (Controlled Appellation). It is now a well known wine.
Syrah. Our red Crozes-Hermitage “Les Meysonniers” comes from the vines which are at least 25 years old. The slight slopes are directed to the South. The soil is made up of a blending of shingles and gravels. The grapes are hand-harvested at maturity. This Crozes-Hermitage is vinified in a traditional way with pumping-over and treadings in concrete tanks. Mainly aged in concrete tanks for around 12 months.
COLOUR : very intense purplish red.
NOSE : red fruits, blackcurrant and raspberry, followed by violet aromas.
MOUTH : ample and round, final of stewed fruits and vanilla.
