Details of wine

This wine is the backbone of the Estate, and is built around the three main identities of the Crozes-Hermitage appellation: La Roche de Glun, Mercurol and Pont de l'Isère. From this spectrum of plots of Syrah, the wine reflects the identity of the vintage, in the true spirit of the Crozes-Hermitage appellation: fruit, brilliance, elegance... what else!



Colore viola intenso con una tonalità viola


Un naso espressivo segnato da frutta nera, come ribes nero o cassis. Si può osservare un leggero tocco di menta quando si lascia respirare il vino.


Il palato è ricco e generoso. Gli aromi di frutta nera si sviluppano con intensità. I tannini vellutati conferiscono a questo vino una pienezza deliziosa, con un tocco di freschezza sul finale.


Piccione piccante arrostito in padella con cavolo verza imburrato, bistecca di manzo in padella con purè di patate, scaglie di formaggio Mimolette stagionato.

REFINEMENT Il vino viene fatto maturare in tini per mantenere il fruttato e prevenire l'influenza del legno.
WINEMAKING Diradamento delle foglie attorno ai grappoli per un'esposizione ottimale al sole, prima della raccolta manuale. Nessun lievito industriale utilizzato durante la vinificazione e le bacche vengono diraspate. Le temperature di fermentazione sono aumentate progressivamente da 20° a 30°, per un'estrazione ottimale, e vengono quindi mantenute a questo livello. In media, il periodo di vinificazione dura tre settimane con un rimontaggio di due volte al giorno, in cui cerchiamo di coprire l'interi cappello di vinacce.

The adventure all began with Yann’s parents. They decided to settle in the area, on a four-hectare site, at the beginning of the 70s: one hectare of vineyards, and the rest, fruit orchards. They continued to extend the estate while maintaining the dual crop system, so common at the time. Their first harvests were sold to local merchants, and from 1973 onwards, they began to make their own wine before joining the Tain Cooperative Winery until 1978. The following year, Nicole and Bernard Chave created their own private winery. In 1996, Yann was 26 years old. With a postgraduate diploma in Auditing and Management Control, and free of military service obligations, he decided to work on the wine-growing part of the estate. With tender attachment to his vineyard, he restructured the vines and began to work on the soil. After being victim of poisoning by an insecticide he was using to treat the vines, he began seeking alternative solutions, engaging with organic agriculture at the dawn of the year 2000. The estate was certified in 2007. Today, located at the heart of Crozes-Hermitage appellation, the estate extends to 20 hectares, with 1.2 hectares on the mythical Hermitage hillside. The first noticeable thing about Yann is his imposing stature, the stature of a rugby man, carved out of solid rock: hard, intact, alive. Like a player before a match, he begins harvesting each year with the same sense of nervous excitement: he prepares, observes, analyses, and hones his strategy. Then, when the whistle blows to start the match, with the first strokes of the secateurs, he ploughs in straight ahead with his match plan, making tactical adjustments in adaptation with the environment. The energy is there, and so is the challenge. A stimulus, partly responsible for the heart-felt passion he bears for his profession. Beyond the player, Yann is also a level-headed Cartesian. Since 2007, his commitment to organic agriculture has been applied to his entire vineyard, and is the well-explored, well-measured choice of a technician: concerned for the quality of raw material produced. Today, he defends organic production in the name of societal responsibility and the transmission he believes in, for his children and future generations.
