The plot, situated on the vertical vertices of the Hermitage ridge, is on a terrace of Granit other than a large enclosure.

Tasting Notes: A deep red ruby colour, notes of red fruits and cassis. The attack is complete and elaborate, the wine is smooth and working in a bouquet and with great finesse.

Food Pairing: Pairs wonderfully with all types of cheeses and red meats. 

The small family-owned ‘Vins Paret’ company was founded in 1876 in Condrieu. Joanny Paret’s business delivered Condrieu wines within a 25km radius around the village on horses and his largest customer was the church. The wine was used for mass. In the 1940’s, Pierre Denuzière, Joanny’s Paret son in law, took over the company and renamed it Vins Denuzière. Under his leadership and followed by his sons Jean and Joseph, Vins Denuzière became one of the largest wine distributor in the region, supplying wine from Lyon all the way down to Valence. The Denuzière family then sold Vins Denuzière to Mr Michel Picard in 2003. Mr Picard originates from Burgundy and is a respected negociant from that region. In 2010, the business model was changed from being a wine distributor to producing wines under the estate brand name J. Denuzière. The new company changed its focuss and decided to produce high end Northern Rhône wines, under the J. Denuzière brand name. A one hectare vineyard in Condrieu and 1.5 hectares in Cornas were purchased and new partnerships with top winegrowers from other Northern Rhône appellations were also created. Samuel Montgermont and Caroline Moro arrived on the estate in 2013 and were put in charge of production. The first estate release under the J. Denuzière brand name was for the 2014 vintage with a Côte Rôtie and Condrieu

Crozes-Hermitage is an appellation of the northern Rhone valley in France. It covers a relatively large area on the eastern bank of the Rhone river, to the north and south of Tain L"Hermitage town. Much larger than the prestigious Hermitage appellation which it surrounds, Crozes-Hermitage is also much more prolific. In 2011 almost 70,000 hl of wine were produced and sold under the Crozes-Hermitage title – more than the other seven northern Rhone appellations combined.

The Grape
Syrah/ Shiraz

A noble black grape variety grown particularly in the Northern Rhône where it produces the great red wines of Hermitage, Cote Rôtie and Cornas, and in Australia where it produces wines of startling depth and intensity. Reasonably low yields are a crucial factor for quality as is picking at optimum ripeness. Its heartland, Hermitage and Côte Rôtie, consists of 270 hectares of steeply vineyards producing wines that brim with pepper, spices, tar and black treacle when young. After 5-10 years they become smooth and velvety with pronounced fruit characteristics of damsons, raspberries, blackcurrants and loganberries.

It is now grown extensively in the Southern Rhône where it is blended with Grenache and Mourvèdre to produce the great red wines of Châteauneuf du Pape and Gigondas amongst others. Its spiritual home in Australia is the Barossa Valley, where there are plantings dating as far back as 1860. Australian Shiraz tends to be sweeter than its Northern Rhône counterpart and the best examples are redolent of new leather, dark chocolate, liquorice, and prunes and display a blackcurrant lusciousness.
