Wines from Crozes Hermitage are made exclusively of Syrah, the star grape of the Northern Rhône Valley and are usually fruity and subtle. This cuvée by Dauvergne-Ranvier is the perfect ambassador of this well-known appellation: nose of pepper and black cherry; round and delicate palate with supple tannins and a long fresh finish. A very elegant and feminine red that will charm anyone. Definitely one of our favourites Crozes Hermitage!
