Certified Bio-dynamic
Variety: 100% Syrah
Country Region: France, Northern Rhône Valley
Appellation: Crozes-Hermitage

100% Syrah from vines with average age of 20 years. Vinified in cement cuve with cuvaison up to 32 days and very gentle pressing in a vertical press. Elevage on fine lees for 12 months in both tank and barrel (none new) before bottling.
“A charming bouquet of resinous herbs, cracked pepper and ripe cherries emerges on the nose of the 2016 Crozes Hermitage Georges, which matured a year in tank (50%) and barrel (50%). Medium to full-bodied, it's lush and creamy in texture, turning to pure silk on the mouthwatering finish. Just lovely stuff for drinking over the next 6-7 years.”       93 points erobertparker.com Dec 2018

David Reynaud - Domaine les Bruyeres

Domaine les Bruyères is situated in Crozes-Hermitage at Beaumont-Monteux below the Hermitage hill in the Northern Rhone Valley. The domaine has been part of the Serret / Reynaud family for generations growing and supplying grapes to other producers in the region.  In the year 2000, David Reynaud began his quest to create a 100% bio-dynamic vineyard and to embark on making and marketing the wines from their superbly sited vineyards. This plan came into fruition when in 2003, the domaine became ECO Certified, and in these first few years his talent at winemaking also quickly became apparent and the wines assert brilliance in their complexity and elegance.

The domaine is made up of 14.5 hectares in Crozes-Hermitage, and an additional 5.5 hectares in local villages amongst the Rhone hills. The vines grown in the domaine are aged between 20 - 50 years, of which 87% is made up of Syrah. Reynaud also has small plantations of Marsanne, Roussanne, Merlot and Viognier. The soil of his Crozes-Hermitage vineyards is characterised by a clay and alluvial pudding stone top-soil with a chalky limestone sub-soil, with good natural ground drainage from the pudding stones. Reynaud, maintains low yields of 35 hl/ha across the Domaine and in a remarkably short time he has gained the attention of the wine press not only in France but around the world. One taste and you will understand why !!
