2016 Crozes-Hermitage Les Picaudieres, Cave Rousset

A noticeable step up, there’s wonderful balance here between the purity and concentration. Dark cherries and minerals with wild herbs and spice build to a delicious total. It’s very good indeed.

2016 Crozes-Hermitage Les Picaudieres, Cave Rousset
Cave Rousset

Stéphane and Robert Rousset work some of the finest terroir across 10 hectares in Crozes-Hermitage, including about half of the famous, granite-terraced Les Picaudières vineyard, acquired from their great-uncle Raymond Roure (the rest went to Jaboulet). They have always worked from the soil up, practising biodynamic viticulture and even ploughing by horse where the valley’s famous slopes allow! The wines are age-worthy and gorgeously expressive.
