Keep it natural, baby.
Tasting- Color: Ruby red color with a violet hue.
Nose: an elegant, fine and very expressive nose. Notes of blackcurrant, licorice and a hint of pepper.
Palate: wine marked by a fine structure. The tannins elegantly highlight rich, concentrated matter of great finesse. The wine is truly harmonious, revealing great balance and a very long finish.
Pairing- Charolais beef with red wine reduction served with marrow bone, roast spare ribs with Espelette chili pepper served with oyster mushrooms, Isigny Camembert cheese.
Maturing- A wine which calls for patience, and which should be enjoyed, for expression of its full potential, at between 5 and 10 years of age.
On the Chassis terraces, the former Rhône river bed has deposited a layer of river pebbles, marking the identity of the terroir and emblematic of the Crozes-Hermitage appellation. His Syrah have been growing here happily for over 50 years. For Le Rouvre, he select plots where the grapes produce deep, perfectly velvety tannins, for a wine with a marked identity and optimal ageing qualities.
