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.
"The 2020 Crozes-Hermitage L’Antre Coeur is a big, meaty, peppery effort that
brings serious character. Medium-bodied and juicy on the palate, with ripe,
nicely integrated tannins and good overall balance, it’s for those who like the
wilder side to Syrah!"
