Laurent Fayolle Les Pontaix Crozes-Hermitage 2018
A very classy, elegant Crozes-Hermitage, drinkable now but will keep well.
Laurent Fayolle took over part of his family’s estate back in 2002, when it was split up. This excellent Crozes-Hermitage comes from the steep 3.5 hectare Les Pontaix vineyard grown on terraces overlooking the village of Crozes-Hermitage. The soil is clay over limestone and his organically farmed Syrah vines, 100%, are over 40 years old. The wine is fermented and aged in 600L oak demi-muids only 15% new, the resultant wines are unfined and unfiltered.
The result is a very classy, elegant Northern Rhône, drinkable now but will keep well.
