Les Champs Libres 'Crozes-Hermitage Frederic Pierro' 2020
Region: Northern Rhone, France
Vineyard/Cellar: Organic. Unfined, unfiltered. Very low added sulphur.
Les Champs Libres is a collaboration between two great Northern Rhone natural winemakers - Herve Souhaut of Domaine Romaneaux Destezet and Rene-Jean Dard of Dard et Ribo. The grapes were purchased from organic grower Frederic Pierro. This is a very classy Crozes, with dark fruit and a very pronounced savoury character - think black olives and peppery spice - but also great freshness and energy.
