Yann Chave: "On the Chassis terraces, the former Rhône river bed has deposited a layer of river pebbles, marking the identity of the terroir and emblematic of the Crozes-Hermitage appellation. My Syrah have been growing here happily for over 50 years. For Le Rouvre, I select plots where the grapes produce deep, perfectly velvety tannins, for a wine with a marked identity and optimal ageing qualities."
Colour: Ruby red colour with a violet hue.
Nose: an elegant, fine and very expressive nose. Notes of blackcurrant, liquorice and a hint of pepper.
Palate: wine marked by a fine structure. The tannins elegantly highlight rich, concentrated matter of great finesse. The wine is truly harmonious, revealing great balance and a very long finish.
