Dm Gilles Robin (375ml), 2012, Crozes Hermitage Cuvée Albéric Bouvet

Red, Old World, Syrah from the Northern Rhone, France

Past wine – out of stock. See here instead


This 100% Syrah is solely made with old vines from the major terroirs of the Estate (Rochas, Monico, Terres rouges). The blend is firstly based on Syrah grapes whose early maturity brings femininity and spices; another Syrah style, more rustic, with ripe fruits and elegant tannins, blends perfectly with the first one. Finally, a deeper Syrah style, full of red fruits, completes the ideal Albéric Bouvet. During its ageing it will reveal of the best terroirs of Gilles Robin Estate and the blending of the different Syrah styles that are key to this cuvee.

The wine maker describes this wine as 'showing a deep ruby colour. The nose is an explosion of black fruits: cassis, blackberry and jammy red fruits, then leather and tobacco notes. On the palate, liquorice comes first and shows the young age of the wine, then come the aromas that we found on the nose added to slightly oaky notes, baked toasts and smoky aromas'.  We agree.

Gilles Robin Estate is a family owned winery with 15 hectares of 40 year old vines, on average, which has always been treated with a great respect of the nature. Ploughed soils, use of compost and organic fertilizer, 100% manual works, organic manure, always natural and respectful of the environment. Nothing has changed in the traditional methods used by the past generations.  This approach has enabled his wines to win many awards and acolades.
