Crozes Hermitage is the largest of the Northern Rhône appellations. It covers the territory of 11 communes in the Drôme "département", on the left bank of the Rhône river.
The wine is made from a blend of grapes that come exclusively from the Domaine des Grands Chemins, owned by Delas Frères. All the vineyard plots lie on benches known as the "Chassis", formed at the junction between the rivers Isère and Rhône. Production: initial production was 38,000 bottles in 2006 and 32,000 bottles in 2007. A greater understanding of this site should enable Delas to increase production to 48,000 bottles. Grape Variety : 100% Syrah
Grapes are hand-picked, plot by plot, at maximum levels of ripeness. Wine making is quite traditional, with fermentation in open concrete tanks, following a cold-soaking. Daily cappunching and pumping over provides extraction. The maceration phase lasts for between 10 and 12 days.
Maturing is conducted over a 14 month period, partly in tanks and partly in small burgundian barrels that have already held one or two wines. Regular rackings introduce the necessary quantity of oxygen to round out the tannins.
