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: Ripe blackberry and cassis aromas on the nose, with complex pepper, spice, cocoa, tobacco, and black olive notes. Well-structured, with fine-grained tannins and layers of black fruit on the palate. A wine of impressive elegance and finesse, with a long, persistent finish.
Serve With: Excellent with wide range flavorful red meats (duck, lamb, more) and rich cheeses.
