The vineyard stretches over 3 communes in the Drôme “department”: Tain-l’Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage and Larnage.
The soils are a combination of granite with alluvial quaternary delta deposits, and Pliocene marl. This diversity explains the numerous names given to vineyard plots within the appellation.
This wine is a blend of three different terroirs: L’Ermite, Le Sabot, and the famed Les Bessard.
These vineyards are protected from the north winds, the slopes are well exposed to the sun, facing south.
Grape Variety: 100% Syrah
The colour shows brilliant, deep red hues.
The nose is powerful and complex, expressing blackberry, spice and leather.
On the palate, the Domaine des Tourettes is firm but silky, with a tightly-knit tannic structure that is a hallmark of a wine with a great future.
