Additional Wine Information

Story
François Dauvergne and Jean-François Ranvier met in the Rhône Valley, where their wine careers had taken them. In 2004 they both left jobs with large wine companies to found their own small label presenting a range of wines from different Rhône Valley appellations. They own no vines but rather work closely with a group of carefully selected farmers in each area. Ranvier, a highly trained winemaker with a degree in agronomy, trades his consultations to the growers in exchange for the opportunity to select his desired lots. Crozes-Hermitage is the largest appellation in the northern Rhone and represents some of the low hills and terraces across the river from the hills of Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie. As in those two famous locations, Crozes-Hermitage reds are made of Syrah, whose expression in this bottling suggests wild blackberries and rocks.
Sense
The scents of black raspberries and blackberries intermingle with darker aromas of violets and nightshade, plus hints of bacon, iron and white pepper.
Savor
Rustic and powerful, the Dauvergne Ranvier Crozes-Hermitage deftly carries its dark blackberry and brambly flavors with an underlying mineral texture and intriguing notes of earth, iron and spice.
Serve
Any good northern Rhône Syrah like this Crozes-Hermitage will benefit from being paired with strong meats like lamb, grass-fed beef or game such as venison or boar. Thanks to its soft tannins, the wine works well when these meats are grilled or braised, especially if you play to the wine’s high tones with accents like rosemary, olives, black pepper, garlic and thyme. Take inspiration from dishes like Braised Moroccan Lamb Chops and Grilled Mojo Chicken (recipes at williams-sonoma.com).
Serving Instructions
Serve a little cooler than room temperature: refrigerate the bottle for 10 minutes before serving.
