60% Syrah, 25% Grenache, 15% Cinsault • 14% Vol • Appellation Sancerre • Organic
One of two superb red wines served at Gauthier Soho from producers Nicole Michel & Jean-Yves Chaperon, from the Terrasses du Larzac an appelation in Languedoc in the village of St Andre de Sangonis, 30kms N.W Montpellier.
This is a new appellation from Languedoc. La Croisée des Chemins combines high solar ripeness with freshness and velvety palate and typical Syrah scents such as ripe strawberry.
Bright and juicy, at Gauthier Soho we pair with a real classic - the fillet of duck with black cherries.
About the producer: Jean-Yves Chaperon and his wife Nicole Michel created the 8 hectare vineyard in 2005.
The terroirs have large rolled pebbles stones, with high thermal amplitude and frequent north wind.
Those conditions provide wines with maturity, structure and freshness at the same time.
Hand harvested, gravity winemaking and Organic Ecocert certification in 2012.
