Laurent Veyrat Crozes Hermitage l'antre coeur
Domaine Laurent Veyrat
France - Rhone Valley - Crozes-Hermitage AOC

Grown in the village of Chanos-Curson the Syrah grapes come from 25-30-year-old vines planted in soil consisting of porous granite, clay, limestone, and loess (sedimentary silt deposited by wind)

Beautifully balanced and structured, this wine showcases a big, gamey, meatiness with white pepper and green olive. It exhibits intense notes of red fruits, blackcurrant, raspberry, and strawberry. This 100% Syrah offers a pure expression of the Northern Rhône terroir.

brings serious character. Medium-bodied and juicy on the palate, with ripe,

wilder side to Syrah!"
