What the Critics say
From vines planted in the 1950’s on granite soils in the North of Crozes The grapes are destemmed for a modern style fermentation of pump overs and cap punching. Aged for 12 months in new oak before being bottled unfiltered and unfined. This is a very modern tasting Crozes-Hermitage with bright red fruits outlined by new oak.
So far ahead of the organics game was Laurent’s father Maurice, he gained the nickname of Maurice le Fou (Crazy Maurice) when he converted the family’s mixed fruit farm over 40 years ago. All that hard work has paid off for his son, and current generation winemaker Laurent Combier.
