Domaine Rousset - 2015 Crozes Hermitage Rouge Les Picaudieres
24 in stock
From just east of Erôme and Gervans lies this lieu-dit of Crozes-Hermitage, one of most special parcels in the appellation. Reaching it requires a small hike, as the vineyards are tucked back into the forest. A mixture of some kind of metamorphic stone and granite, the soil produces Crozes-Hermitage tailored for those who value elegance and structure in the same wine—unsurprisingly reminiscent of the granitic western flank of Hermitage. It’s stunning and, with time in the glass, will transport your imagination to some sort of ancient, primal (but pure and clean) vision of Syrah before modernity set in.
