Domaine des Remizieres Crozes Hermitage 2013
Domaine des Remizières “Cuvée Particulières” 2016 – Crozes Hermitage
The wine is produced from Syrah vines averaging 50 years of age from various parcels representing 5 ha on claye-limestone slopes. The average yield is about 40 hl/ha. After 4-5 days of pre-fermentation skin macerations at 10°C, the fermentations are carried out in small stainless steel vats for 20 to 30 days at 28-30°C. The ageing is done in demi-muid barrels of 600 litres for 15 months of which 20% are new.
PVins notes: This dark cherry coloured, wine offers a complexity of fruit and spice aromas. Medium-bodied, the palate shows fine grain tannins and the oak is very well integrated, a little cellaring over 1-2 years on release is recommended. The wine can be cellared for up to a decade.

The 2016 Crozes-Hermitage Cuvée Particulière is cut from the same cloth and offers high-quality notes of blackberry, blueberry and peppery herbs as well as hints of background oak. It’s polished, elegant and seamless on the palate, with fine tannin and good acidity.
Wine Spectator 91
An enticing, warm style, with layers of fig sauce and crushed plum fruit steeped with anise hints and laced with ganache accents. Offers a light brambly echo through the finish. Best from 2019 through 2024.
