2019 Olivier Ravoire Crozes Hermitage Red
By naming this range in honour of the epic of Capitan Ravoire – a valiant knight in the 16th century in the Comtat Venaissin in 1593 - Olivier Ravoire was keen to highlight the history of the Ravoire family. In this respect, the different appellations have been named using terms associated with chivalry. Espee, the name of our Crozes-Hermitage vintage, is a term borrowed from an old French word meaning sword and refers to the knight's weapon of choice. The vintage is the result of ameticulous blend of grapes from the best plots in the appellation. This wine was created to offer a rich tasting experience to share and discover.
Tasting notes: Dark ruby red colour. Intense and complex bouquet with black fruits; reminiscent of black currant and spices. Mouthfeel offering a potent silky character and elegant tannic structure.
