Tasting notes

A concentrated nose with notes of spice, black pepper, cloves and black fruit gums. On the palate, it is nice and light with velvety tannins and finish of ripe black fruits, cedar, concentrated juice and tapenade. Perfect with pizza, pasta, casseroles and stews. Also enjoyable with mature, strong cheese, as well as, asian dishes.

Estate

With roots dating back to 1808, M. CHAPOUTIER is one of the oldest companies in the Rhône Valley. Yet, its world renown and the quality of wine can truly be accredited to the arrival of Michel Chapoutier in 1990. His willingness to change the set way, thirst for knowledge and open-mindedness, together with his drive to seek, discover and reflect the full potential of our terroirs, letting the soils express their true character, has put our wines firmly on the wine world map. This philosophy is what gives our wines their signature style, forms the basis of the M. CHAPOUTIER ethos and drives our team to reveal the very best of what the soils have to offer.

Vineyard

A blend of different terroirs. Coarse-grained stony granite on the western side of the Hermitage hill. Puddingstone on the eastern side of the Hermitage hill. Terrace of river alluvium in Les Chassis area.

Lots of chocolaty dark fruits, smoked herbs, pepper, and meaty notes emerge from the 2019 Crozes-Hermitage Sicamor, a rich, medium to full-bodied, concentrated Syrah. With ripe tannins and a layered, opulent style on the palate, it's a stunning Crozes in the making. Aside from the Les Varonniers, it’s a clear standout in the Crozes lineup.

The cedar, vanilla and wood spice-scented 2019 Crozes-Hermitage Sicamor backs those notes with copious black cherries and blackberries. A blend of three different terroirs (granite, puddingstone and argille-galets), it's full-bodied, concentrated and richly tannic, with a long, velvety finish. Purists will say it's oaky and a bit generic, but quibbles aside, it's a tasty glass of wine for drinking over the rest of this decade.
