Marlene & Nicolas Chevalier Crozes Hermitage Blanc 'La Motte' 2021 75cl


Tasting Note

"Made entirely from Marsanne, this is a lovely wine with bucketloads of apricots, delicate citrus and floral aromas. The palate is rich, oily, waxy with nice plump juicy peach and pepper hints on the end. I really like this" Peter's Points 90/100


The Chevalier family are polyculturalists who, apart from cultivating vineyards, farm the other crop famous in the region: apricots. Until 2009, they delivered all their grapes to the co-operative in Tain which, ironically, their ancestors had helped to create 100 years before. Their 17 hectares of vines extend on the superior slopes of the appellation, above the village of Chanos Curson. This, in turn is divided into 13 hectares of Syrah, 2.5 hectares of Marsanne and 1.5 hectares of Roussanne. Everything is vinified in their new cuverie, built to accommodate the 2013 harvest.
