Yannick Alléno & Michel Chapoutier



Crozes-Hermitage white


Brown and colluvium soils derived from metamorphosed
granite (leptynites) with a varying amount of pebbles, from the Primary Era. Grapes harvested by hand at optimal maturity.

The wine is aged in barrels on the fine lees.

Michel describes his wine to Yannick

On the nose, the wine is reminiscent of yellow fruit, white flowers and sweet spices. I really like the wine’s rich, smooth entry to the palate. Beautiful sugar, a pear and yellow peach bouquet, and a complex, saline finish.
