Yann Chave Crozes Hermitage 2017
By Yann Chave
Sophisticated, spicy red wine. Rich and generous. Organic
Tasting Notes: Deep purple colour with a purple hue. An expressive nose marked by black fruit, such as blackcurrant or cassis. A hint of mint may be observed when the wine is left to breathe. The palate is rich and generous. Aromas of black fruit develop with intensity. Velvety tannins give this wine delicious fullness, with a hint of freshness on the finish.
May be enjoyed as of now, but we advise leaving it to cellar mature for 5 to 10 years.
This wine is the backbone of the Estate, and is built around the three main identities of the Crozes-Hermitage appellation: La Roche de Glun, Mercurol and Pont de l'Isère. From this spectrum of plots of Syrah, the wine reflects the identity of the vintage, in the true spirit of the Crozes-Hermitage appellation: fruit, brilliance, elegance... what else!
Food Match : Pan-roasted pigeon served with buttered Savoy cabbage, pan fried rump steak with mashed potato with shavings of mature Mimolette cheese. Camenbert cheese.
