2019 Crozes-Hermitage Rouge, Domaine Rousset

These vines enjoy the freshening influence of altitude. They are located between 120-300 metres high, and as a result, this 2019 has such a charming crunchy, vibrant, fresh texture. There are bursting red berries and mineral freshness. A perfect Crozes if you like freshness and vim in your Syrah, and a stand out from the appellation in 2019.

2019 Crozes-Hermitage Rouge, Domaine 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.
