The Cave de Tain is among the world’s very greatest wine producers, a giant of the Northern Rhone with over 50 acres in Hermitage, a stunning, state-of-the-art winery (10 million Euros invested over the past five years) and a brilliant team of winegrowers.
Besides Hermitage, they produce most of the region’s IGP (previously Vin de Pays) and half of all Crozes Hermitage (but bottling only a third of that under their own top label), as well as St Joseph, Cornas and St. Peray.
Tasting Notes: An iconic wine named after Louis Gambert de Loche (1884-1967), the founder of the Cave de Tain. A wine of exceptional power and elegance. Offers a complex nose of ripe black fruit, with hints of exotic spice and smoked meat, and light menthol and bacon notes. Dense, rich, and well-structured on the palate, with ripe, fine-grained tannins. Very long on the finish.
Serve With: The perfect pairing for game and rich, red meat preparations.
