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: Offers ripe yellow fruit and pear aromas on the nose, with hints of white flowers, menthol and hazelnuts. The palate is rich but exceptionally well-balanced by a lively acidity, with a light, underlying minerality and long, lingering finish.
Serve With: Excellent with blue cheeses and a wide range of flavorful poultry and seafood dishes (especially lobster preparations, scallops with lemon butter, chicken with morel mushrooms and cream sauce, and more).
