Description

Y/M – Yannick Alléno & Michel Chapoutier Guer-Van Crozes-Hermitage 2016

Y/M Guer-Van Crozes-hermitage has a deep ruby red with crimson higlights. When the bottle is opened, it fills the air with aroma of black fruits and spices and hints of pepper and ferns. The palate is fresh on entry, followed by velvety tannins which gives it good structure. The array of aromas includes sour licorice, black fruit and soot, while the wine glides down your throat, it eludes a long lasting and refreshing finish.

This bottle of red is made up of 100% Syrah and its vines are grown on brown soils and colluvium derived from metamorphosed granite (leptynites) with a varying amount of pebbles from the Primary Era. The grapes are hand harvested at optimal maturity and are fully destemmed. The maceration lasts for 4 weeks in concrete tanks with regular pumping over to ensure gentle extraction. The alcoholic and malolactic fermentations are carried out in barrel using native flor. The wine is then aged in oak barrels which have already been used for several wines.

Yannick Alléno & Michel Chapoutier. Two passionate “créateurs”. Two persons with strong characters, but sharing the same one language – the quest for refinement. Yannick Alléno, a Michelin-starred chef and true perfectionist. Michel Chapoutier, a pioneering and deeply committed winemaker with very strong values and one shared passion – the Rhône Valley.

Sommelier’s advice: Pair this beautiful bottle with suckling pig chops with Charcutuère sauce. You’re welcome, because here is a recipe for you by Chef Alléno.

Explore Syrah from Tuscany.
