Jean-Luc Colombo / 2015 Crozes Hermitage Les Fees Brunes

COUNTRY/REGION: France/Rhone Valley.

GRAPES: 100% Syrah.

ABV: 13%

UNIT: 1 x 75cl Bottle.

WINEMAKER NOTES: An upmarket cuvée from a single vineyard block displaying delicate notes of blackcurrant and raspberry on the nose leading to a fresh, juicy cherry and black plum fruit palate.

VINEYARD: From vineyards planted on the granitic terraced slopes of this renowned appellation in the Northern Rhône.

VINTAGE: 2015 was an exceptionally good vintage in the Northern Rhône - especially for red varietals. The relatively wet winter and spring helped to replenish the water table that eased the hot conditions over the summer months. There was a very little rainfall between June and August but thanks to the water reserve, the grapes were very healthy and of very high quality.

WINEMAKING: The grapes are manually harvested into small, shallow containers and vinified traditionally, undergoing a long maceration process. The wine is aged for 15 months in oak barrels (1/3 in new oak, 1/3 in 1 year old, 1/3 in 2 years old barrels.).

TASTING NOTES: An upmarket cuvée from a single vineyard site displaying delicate notes of black currant and raspberry on the nose leading to a fresh, juicy cherry and black plum fruit palate against a ferrous background.
