Lavau Crozes-Hermitage 2019




Dashing Northern Rhône Syrah from brothers Frederic and Benoit Lavau. Reticent and tight initially, this fine French Syrah unfurls with time to reveal an intoxicating, multi-faceted bouquet rich with smoky leather, blueberry and garden herbs – wow! Medium bodied, with milk-chocolate tannins, balanced acidity and sumptuous flavours of cherry jam and graphite minerals. Classy drop.

Decant for 2 hours and enjoy with mutton hotpot and root vegetables.

Producer: Lavau

In 1964, the Lavau family founded a company that produced wine from bought-in grapes and then sold it on in the bulk wine market. In 2000, Frederic and brother Benoit Lavau took control and the boys totally changed the direction of the business, deciding to start bottling their wine under the Lavau label. In a complementary move, they partnered the business with Château Maucoil, a 40-hectare farm in nearby Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
