The Crozes Hermitage Nouvelere is made from 100% Syrah from old vines that is fermented and aged in oak. This is wonderfuly complex and concentrated, showing brooding dark fruits, liquorice, herbs and spice. An absolute joy and a terrific example of Crozes Hermitage.
Philippe Jaboulet, along with his son, Vincent, took over Domaine Collonge in Crozes-Hermitage as a going concern soon after the sale of Maison Paul Jaboulet Ainé to the Frey family in January 2006. The Jaboulet family kept hold of most of their prized vineyards, including the Thalabert which has 80 + year old vines and is littered with large boulders, making any sort of mechanisation impossible.

2021 Gamay ‘Canaille’, Domaine Roussely
Vincent Roussely is the fourth generation of the family to make wines at this beautiful 8 hectare vineyard site in the heart of Chenonceaux on the Cher River. Since 2007 he has farmed his vineyards by hand machine and horse and as a result has seen the health of his vineyards and grapes improve immeasurably, which naturally has a direct influence on the wines he produces.The Cellar is underground, dug into a tuffeau tunnel underneath the vines, and have been used for vinification of wine for over 250 years. New inox fermentation tanks have been put in place located in carved out recesses in the soft stone. Ferments are spontaneous and naturally very slow. 100% Gamay, 50% of which is whole bunch ferment and 50% destemmed from the younger vineyards around the village of Ange, south of the Cher river. Natural ferments with malolactic fermentation taking place in stainless steel and bottled the summer after harvest. Delightfully approachable and a pure pleasure to drink, this is a true terroir wine with a sense of place and vitality which make it equally appealing to savour or simply drink.
