2016 Emmanuel Darnaud Les Trois Chenes Crozes-Hermitage 750 ml

Availability: In stock (29)

"Les Trois Chênes" means The Three Oaks...

Varietal: 100% Syrah

Color: Red ruby with slight pink tints

Nose: Notes of blackberries, olives and black pepper.

Mouth: Long on the palate and clawy. The taste reveals very exquisite tannins which need several years to fade away with ageing. The whole is of a very nice balance.

Since the very beginning, Emmanuel has made a point of separating out the production from each land parcel for winemaking to keep the emphasis on each terrain’s subtlety and live expression. His ideal is to strike a perfect balance, requiring the utmost care during the grape harvest. The soils are worked and the output is limited. The grapes are picked manually and grouped by parcel. The harvest is partially destalked and placed in fermentation vats for 15–20 days. The wine is brought to a finish in wood containers, mostly casks but also wooden vats or huge oak barrels called "demi muids”.
