Tasting

the 2019 Crozes-Hermitage Laurus gives up lots of dark fruits as well as notes of spice, violets, and underbrush. I love its purity of fruit, it’s medium to full-bodied, and has outstanding length. Jeb Dunnuck, November 19th 2020

Detailed information

Vintage

In the Northern Rhone Valley, the vintage is of exceptionnally high quality, showing both richness and freshness. Following a rather warm start to the spring, temperatures dropped and remained below seasonal averages until the beginning of summer. The vines then faced high temperatures in July and August. Thankfully, rain arrived at the beginning of the harvest, ensuring both quantity and quality for all of our appellations.

Terroir

Plots were selected on the two maine terroirs of the Crozes Hermitage AOP:
– Mercurol in the south, with its ancient alluvial terraces of the Rhône River providing structure and fruit (100m of altitude – South/Southwest exposure)
– “Les Baties” vineyard, at 200m in alt, farther North. Here the soils are granite based with sand mixed with kaolin, contributing freshness and minerality.
