M. Chapoutier Les Meysonniers Rouge
AOP Crozes-Hermitage, Rhône
'Les Meysonniers' is a wine with fleshy tannins and loads of floral and black fruit notes, as well as elegance.
Pairs beautifully with pizza, pasta, casseroles and hearty stews.
Our Crozes-Hermitage is vinified traditionally with punching down and pumping over taking place in concrete tanks. This wine is made from organically grown grapes. The exclusion of all chemical products (in particular herbicides), and the ploughing of the vineyards, enables the vine to plunge its root system deep down into the heart of the soil. Deeper root systems make the vine’s physiological behavior more even and provide better resistance to sudden changes in temperature.
Grapes: 100% Syrah
Alcohol by Volume: 13%
South facing slopes. The soil consists of a mixture of clay, pebbles and gravel. The alluvial terroir of Crozes-Hermitage was formed by terraces from the Rhône and Isère rivers.
