Cave de Tain Crozes-Hermitage Rouge ‘Les Hauts du Fief’ - Wineseeker

Cave de Tain Crozes-Hermitage Rouge ‘Les Hauts du Fief’

Velvety oaked Syrah with full flavour from northern Rhone valley. Powerful yet elegant; the lovely dark ripe bramble fruit is balanced by sleek oak and supple tannins. Definitely a step up from standard Crozes.  

Tasting Note

100% Syrah

Crozes-Hermitage AOC

The Crozes Hermitage appellation is around 1300 hectares in total size, varying from flat clay soils to steep granite terraces. The 'Haut du Fief' comes from the best steep terraces that Cave de Tain can lay hands to, where the superior aspect to the sun and free draining granite makes for intense and satisfying wines. 

Inky dark purple, almost black at the core. Aromas of blackberry, black olive, cumin and cedar. Very smooth on the palate with fine grained tannins, drinking nicely now but will age happily another 2-4+ years.
