Don’t be sleeping on the Northern Rhone Valley. Syrah in a silk slip, elegant wine, very complex and structural. All those grape tannins are tamed with a little time in oak.

Just three years later, in 2007, she grew her domain, purchasing another 6.5 hectares of old vines in the Crozes-Hermitage appellation, where she added some new plantings as well. She believes the perfect expression of her favourite grape Syrah can be found only here, and well, the wines speak for themselves.
