The Les Meysonniers Crozes Hermitage by M. Chapoutier shows a reddish-violet colour in the glass. On the nose unfolds a multifaceted bouquet of red berries, with cassis and raspberry, in the background delicate violet notes. On the palate, this red Frenchman is dense and round in taste, with lively fruit aromas, some oak wood and vanilla tones that end in a long, soft finish.
Vinification of Les Meysonniers Crozes Hermitage by M. Chapoutier
The red wine Les Meysonniers is vinified as a varietal Syrah. The grapes grow on Mount Hermitage and are biodynamically grown and certified, they come from vines that are at least 25 years old.
After the selective hand-picking, the grapes are gently pressed and fermented at a controlled temperature in concrete vats. The wine is then aged for another 6 months in oak barrels.
Food pairing for Les Meysonniers Crozes Hermitage by M. Chapoutier
We recommend this Syrah from the Rhône to dark meat and powerful poultry dishes, such as goose or guinea fowl, game roasts, and matured hard cheese.
