Overview

Appellation: Crozes-Hermitage Blanc A.C., Rhone

100% Marsanne. The Chanos-Curson terroir is formed with cold clayey hillsides making a fine and mineral white Crozes-Hermitage.

The grapes are hand-picked. Thanks to a slow cold fermentation, the white Crozes-Hermitage develops elegant typical aromas. Its complex and smooth palate comes from a 7 month aging period on lees.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Light yellow.

Aroma

Its nose is made of hazelnut and pear aromas: a white flower bunch with a beautiful mineral expression...

Palate

The palate is nicely balanced in this fresh, full-bodied wine. This vintage brought a rich Crozes-Hermitage with a nice long finish.

Food Matching

Perfect as an aperitif drink and even better with fresh water fishes or nicely grilled chicken fillets. Aged, it will match perfectly a tasty fish in a sauce or our local goat cheeses such as the famous Picodon!

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Cave de Clairmont is a small family run cooperative, which usually produces some of the best value in the appellation: perfumed, lunging and energetic wines.- The New France, Andrew Jefford

Carol Devaux, the viticulturist and winemaker, carries heavy responsibility on her young shoulders – her decisions dictate the livelihood of seven families.

However, she is calm, accurate and extremely professional and this shows in her wines. While the wines taste stately (perhaps that’s the Northern Rhône Syrah), they also remain pretty, balanced and stylish.

Cave de Clairmont seeks to offer the consumer both value and quality – an ambition they achieve.

Founded in 1972, the Cave de Clairmont was the dream of three families who were Crozes-Hermitage specialists. Generation after generation the families have grown bigger but the rigor and passion passed down remains today as strong and proud as ever.
