Trailblazing winemakers René-Jean Dard & François Ribo have been making quality natural wines since back in the 1980s - often being maligned for pursuing this dogma by neighbouring estates. Their wines are some of the most sought after wines for restaurants across Europe.
Natives of the region, Rene-Jean Dard and Francois Ribo met at wine school and formed their eponymous brand in 1984 with just 1hA of vines and a tiny cellar tucked away in the back streets of Tain-l'Hermitage. Now working with over 7hA of vines over 7 villages in the Crozes-Hermitage, St Joseph and Hermitage appellations they have moved their cellar to the hamlet of Blanche-Laine.
Their wines are all about instant 'drinkability' rather than ones to cellar and age (not that you couldn't if you so wished - they age beautifully!). The Croze Hermitage white is a classic blend of the native Marsanne and Roussane grapes grown on alluvial deposits, rolled stones and red clay. This is the wine you want for a special occasion meal, Christmas or just a indulgent Sunday lunch! Textural, rich and moreish!
We only get a tiny allocation of these wines as they are usually only destined for hospitality so best to grab them whilst you can!
