When Luc Trady took over his old family estate, one of his first tasks was to modernise the cellar. He introduced a gravity system to move the wines gently and steadily from pressing through maceration to the fermentation. He also vinify each parcel individually to preserve the character of the separate terroirs.
Unfined and unfiltered Syrah, 40% of which is aged for 12 months in 600 litre old oak casks. Intense dark black fruit and prune aromas with hint of coffee. Modern and smooth on the palate with a good tannic structure. – DWM, March 2017
French still red wine from North Rhone Valley France, made with Syrah.
In 1998 Luc Trady took over the old family estate of Domaine du Murinais located in the wine village of Crozes Hermitage, in Northern Rhône Valley. One of his first tasks was to modernise the cellar, and because Luc enjoys working with a traditional approach, the cellar was refurbished to allow the grapes to reach the cement tanks through gravity which allow longer maceration times.
The estate now covers seventeen hectares of vines and each parcel is vinify individually so the specificity of each terroir is preserved. Luke Trady likes for his wines“to breathe the terroir they are from” and express what he feels when he is in his vineyard and cellar. He produces four cuvées full of character; Les Amandiers, Vieilles Vignes, Caprice de Valentin and Cuvée Marine. View our selection.
