Made from 100 percent Syrah grown in sandy, granite-laden soils, this old-school Crozes-Hermitage offers rustic notes of lightly roasted meat, leather, olive tapenade and cracked pepper, which add complexity and intrigue to a core of dark cherry and red currant fruit. Subtle floral and spice notes emerge in the background, clinging to the long, satisfying finish.
Domaine Mucyn Croze Hermitage rouge
Located 300 miles south of Paris, Crozes-Hermitage— the largest appellation in the Northern Rhône region— is comprised of 3,500 acres of vines spread along the east bank of the Rhône River between Annonay and Valence. While its mostly flat-land vineyards sit in the shadows of the south-facing slopes of the more famous Hermitage appellation, Crozes-Hermitage, with its distinctive Syrah-based red wines, offers a treasure trove of savory, food-friendly and affordable wines with genuine Old World intrigue and finesse.
