Wine maker notes
Our Hermitage comes from a loess site, particularly well exposed to the south-west, with long hours of sunlight. Average age of the vines is 30 years. Foliage is trimmed back around the fruit to let the sunlight in, and green harvesting ensures a yield no higher than 35 Hl/Ha. Harvesting is manual, with careful sorting and takes place as late as possible to reach optimal maturity. Winemaking is the same as for Crozes Hermitage, but vatting is longer, taking about 3 to 4 weeks. Ageing is exclusively in 600 litre barrels for 12 months, as we believe these larger barrels are well suited to the Syrah varietal, and do not over oak the wine. Service : With red meats, game and cheeses. Good ageing capacity.

Producer
The domaine of Yann Chave, a family heritage in the heart of the northern Rhone and the Crozes Hermitage appellation, exists above all because of two mens’ passion for their craft. Yann and his father, Bernard, have transformed this domaine into a reference for wine lovers looking for a combination of subtlety and generosity. Yann himself is a passionate man, and his character speaks through his wines..
