Crozes-Hermitage Les Meysonniers Blanc 2019
'Les Meysonniers' white wine epitomizes the authentic character of Marsanne in Crozes-Hermitage. The nose is full of quince, peony and roasted almonds and the palate is fresh and supple.
From gently sloping, south-facing hillsides, composed of Isère river sedimentary soils and large, round pebbles.
An impressive Rhône vintage, with wines of impeccable balance. High temperatures proved a challenge for growers in the Northern Rhône but some rain later in the season allowed for freshness to come through.
The entire harvest is pressed directly, followed by cold settling for 48 hours. Fermentation takes place in 600 litre casks with natural yeasts. Ageing lasts for 7 to 8 months in tank. 100% of which takes place in stainless steel in order to preserve the aromatic quality.
