An unfined and unfiltered Syrah, 40% of which is aged for 12 months in 600 litre old oak casks, with intense dark black fruits and a very fine structure. Luc Trady took over his old family estate in 1998. One of his first tasks was to modernise the cellar, introducing a gravity system to move the wines gently and steadily from pressing through maceration to the fermentation. The estate covers seventeen hectares of vines and each parcel is vinified individually to preserve the character of the separate terroirs.
Black fruit and prune aromas with hint of coffee. Modern and smooth palate with good tannic structure.
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.
