The northern Rhône is dominated by Syrah (red wine) and Marsanne & Roussane (white wine).
We visited the new home of the Domaine that is now located on Tain l’ Hermitage. Reaching a production of 2.000.000 bottles per year, it is definitely another reality of production. Dating back to 1835, it produces wines from domaine-owned vineyards in the most prestigious parts of the northern Rhone such as Hermitage, but also through partnerships from acquired grapes or wine.
After a short visit of the new building, comes the tasting: Saint-Joseph, Cornas, Cote-Rotie & Hermitage. All the wines being elegant, Hermitage is really out-performing. Such a delight!
