should i keep it?
It is deliberately made to be enjoyed reasonably young but cook keep 2 to 3 years. Definitely not made for long cellaring.
serving temperature
16-17°C. Do not hesitate to chill it a little if the wine has not been stored in a cool cellar. If ser- ved too hot, alcohol will stand out and the fruit flavours might taste a little jammy. If served too cold, aromas will fade and the tannins will taste harsher.
Why we have
SELECTED THIS WINE
Crozes-Hermitage is the appellation to look for if you want to taste fine Northern Rhone Syrah without having to pay the steep price the world-famous Côte-Rôtie and Hermitage command. While a good chunk of Crozes- Hermitage vineyards are in the hands of the local cooperative – which produces reliable but often unexciting wines – there is also a small but growing group of quality Crozes-Hermitage producers. Domaine Combier has long been one of them, regularly producing elegant and balanced Syrahs with delicate floral and peppery aromas which make the Northern Rhone so special.
