Overview

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

The Crozes-Hermitage red wines are made out of Syrah. This variety was introduced in the area before the Roman period. It expresses its best qualities here with the soils and climate favouring this variety.

The Syrah grape variety produces high quality red wines with a great ability to age. With a deep colour and a fantastic range of aromas (violet, chocolate, blackcurrant, spices...), the Crozes-Hermitage red wines are tannic, fine and complex.

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.
