2014 Crozes Hermitage Les Varonniers Chapoutier (Case - 6/75cl)
3.2ha, 100% Syrah Les Varonniers wine comes from the oldest Crozes-Hermitage vines (more than 60 years old). The granitic slopes have a South-East exposure at the end of the Hermitage hill and on fluvial terraces (former bed of the Rhône river) on the "Chassis" plot. The soil is more similar to the one on the Hermitage hill than the flat terroir of the surrounding Crozes. Varonniers’ name comes from the plot, known as ‘Varogne’ historically and officially recognised as a ‘lieu-dit’. The wine follows the same vinification and maturation as its cousins in Hermitage.
