2017 CROZES HERMITAGE, Yann Chave. Northern RhôneOrganic
Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Area: Crozes is a large appellation in the northern Rhône and this wine comes from three vineyards - Mercurol, La Roche de Glun and Pont de l’Isère.
Grape Variety: 100% Syrah, produceed without any oak maturation, the emphasis on freshness.
Producer: Yann Chave (not related to the more famous Hermitage producer JL Chave) is a small estate of around 20 hectares (mostly in Crozes but with a couple of hectares in Hermitage itself).
Old Bridge Rating: Warm vintage give this Crozes unusual ripeness, but it's still very much a fresh, pure, clean style - so different to the bigger, brooding wines from the southern Rhône.
