2018 Crozes-Hermitage Rouge, Cave Rousset

There’s plenty of intensity and focus to this Crozes-Hermitage, with crunchy fruit and lovely depth and energy. There’s part of the blend that’s aged in barrels, the other part in stainless steel: the latter brings freshness, the former, texture.

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.
