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: Rich, full, and well-structured, with aromas of blackberry, cassis, pepper, licorice and violets. The palate offers a remarkable level of balance, with opulent ripeness combined with the indelible finesse of cool-climate Syrah. Very long on the finish.
Serve With: Excellent with wide range of game and red meats (beef, lamb, duck) as well as stews, strong cheeses, and winter and root vegetable dishes.
