Violets, bacon fat and black cherry all interplay on the nose. Deep black cherry and juicy plum flavors meshed with candied violets and cool strawberry flavors on the palate. The moderate tannins highlight the fruity components on the finish. Hervé works 5 hectares of old & ancient vines— 50 to 100 years-old—located on the right bank of the Rhône Valley just opposite the storied hills of Hermitage. 30 year-old vines, some of the fruit is purchased from neighboring growers. Grapes are hand-harvested and undergo a very long maceration at a low temperature—without destemming the fruit. The wine is fermented in wooden tanks and aged on fine lees in second-hand oak casks for eight months. ABV 13%
