CROZES HERMITAGE ROUGE 2016 DOM BELLE, CUVEE LOUIS BIO
Today the Belle estate covers six communes (Larnage, Crozes-Hermitage, Tain l'Hermitage, Pont de l'Isère, Mercurol and Tournon), three appellations (Crozes Hermitage, Hermitage, Saint Joseph) and an area of 25 ha of vines, to which must be added apricot orchards and a wine nursery run by Philippe's brother, Jean Claude. As soon as it opens, the nose explodes with black fruits, sweet spices, nutmeg, wild blackberry and black cherry. The mouth, still young and fiery, starts with a frank and virile attack. Its powerful and demonstrative tannins give the wine its character.
