Tasting Note:

Fleur de Crussol is a single plot officially known by the name La Cote. Situated at the foot of the slope, the vines here represent the oldest of the estate – and the oldest in the appellation – at an impressive 80 years. Granitic in the main with pockets of limestone and facing south-east, the total area is just 1.5HA. Early picked and fermented in wood, it spends 17 months in 228 and 400L barrels, of which 20% are new. Really quite exciting, there is a grip, definition and just enough sheen to give it a really classy feel. The Crussol mountain range, which gave its name to the wine, is extremely important for the Saint-Péray AOC, because it provides limestone elements essential for making fine white wines.
