2020 Domaine Combier Crozes-Hermitage "Cuvée Laurent Combier"
For fans of this wine it's simply known as the "Purple Label." 100% Organic Syrah designed to be a food-friendly introduction to the peppery Syrah of Crozes-Hermitage. The destemmed grapes see a 20-day fermentation in concrete vats, and the wine ages in 600L cement eggs for 8-10 months. Bright red and blueberry-scented fruit with plenty of crushed black pepper notes. Medium body with bright acidity. Good versatile, everyday Crozes. The Combier family are multi-generational fruit and grape growers in the N. Rhône town of Pont de l'Isère. Farming organically since the 1970's, you can find their peaches and apricots throughout France, and (lucky for us) their wines are exported all over.
