Crozes-Hermitage Petite Ruche Rouge 2019
A beautiful nose of red berries, blackcurrant and raspberry followed by a palate with beautiful freshness and roundness.
From rocky terrace vineyards where the soil is composed of high alluvial deposit terraces with a lot of shingle.
An impressive Rhône vintage, with wines of impeccable balance. High temperatures proved a challenge for growers in the northern Rhone but some rain later in the season allowed for freshness to come through.
This Crozes-Hermitage is vinified in cement vats with two pumpings over per day. Vatting lasts between 3 and 4 weeks after the alcoholic fermentation. Aged in vats.
- Grilled and Roasted Red Meats
- Mature Strong Cheeses
