Crozes- Hermitage Etoile Noir 2019 - Domaine Melody
The Crozes-Hermitage Etoile Noir is a selection of Syrah grapes from at least 40-year-old vines. The grapes grow with organic care in fields near Les sept Chemins and in the northern part of Crozes-Hermitage in Monteux. Fermentation after harvest 4 months in stainless steel vats and the wine matures 14 months in large oak barrels of which 10% are new barrels. The Crozes-Hermitage Etoile Noir has a taste of dark, dark fruit, minerality and tannin, bay leaf, vanilla, pinch of graphite and dark chocolate. Decanting the wine is good for releasing a lot of flavor. Serve at 17-18 degrees with beautifully stuffed tomatoes, grilled beef, a quiche with mushrooms or a mushroom ravioli.
