The 3.5 ha Domaine Raymond Roure vineyard was purchased by the Jaboulet family in 1996. It is situated at the highest-altitude section of Crozes in the commune of Gervans, just north of Hermitage. An iconic site and vineyard. Located just on the backside of the Hermitage hill - steep and granite-laden. Biodynamically farmed. 40-60 year old vines. Aged in French oak, 20% new.

Wine AdvocateBrooding, concentrated and tannic, the 2015 Crozes Hermitage Domaine de Roure will need some time to come out of its granite shell. Crushed stone and dark cherries and cassis emerge only reticently on the nose. For easier near-term drinking, grab some of the Thalabert; for serious longevity in the cellar, the Domaine de Roure will be hard to beat.
