    Producer of the Month – Domaine les Chenêts Crozes-Hermitage

    The vagaries of weather had made Madame a bit distracted the last time we visited Domaine les Chenêts a few years ago. They had had some heavy rains and hail which had destroyed a proportion of the crop. By now, the weather had swung to the opposite extreme and the Northern Rhone was subject to blistering hot weather. This meant she wouldn’t do a tasting so we had to bring a couple of bottles home to sample. They have now converted their some 13 hectares of vines to organic farming I’m pleased to say.

    Hermitage stands as a beacon of wine excellence. This renowned wine region, often overshadowed by its more famous neighbour, Hermitage, boasts a rich history dating back centuries. With its diverse terroir and dedication to producing exceptional Syrah wines, Crozes-Hermitage has emerged as a hidden gem for wine enthusiasts seeking quality and authenticity.


    The vineyards of Crozes-Hermitage stretch across rolling hillsides, basking in the Mediterranean climate that graces the Rhône Valley. The region’s soils vary from granite in the north to alluvial terraces in the south, providing a unique canvas for winemakers to craft expressive wines with distinctive characteristics. Syrah reigns supreme here, producing red wines that exhibit a harmonious balance of fruit, spice, and earthy notes, while Marsanne and Roussanne grapes contribute to the production of elegant white wines.
