Cave de Tain L'Hermitage Crozes-Hermitage Rouge 2015
Crozes Hermitage is cultivated on stony, filtering soils in the southern part of the vineyard, and on granite dominated soils to the north. This vineyard surrounds the slopes of Hermitage.
This is the largest appellation (in surface area) in the northern Rhône Valley. Ten times larger than Hermitage, it offers a great variety of terroirs that produce perfectly harmonious cuvées after blending by the Cave de Tain winemakers.
The Crozes Hermitage appellation is the Cave de Tain specialty, since it produces nearly 50% of it!

NOSE: Delicate aromas of blackberry fruits, with vanilla and light oaky notes.
