Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and well-rounded

A wide range of aromas is waiting for you with this yellow wine. At nose first, where fragrances of white flowers match with scents of yellow fruits. After a supple and well-balanced attack is appearing an acidulous taste with notes of white flowers allied to peach and pear. This fruity side is particularly highlighted during the finish.

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Do you know ?

The cellar of Tain has received the praises of the famous American wine taster, Robert Parker, who classified it among the most beautiful cooperative cellars in France.

    Founded in 1933 by Louis Gambert de Loche, the Cave de Tain benefits from the expertise of 300 wine-growers. They produce wines designated as Hermitage, Crozes Hermitage, Saint Joseph, Cornas and Saint Péray but also local wines on more than 1000 hectares of vines.

    • Terroir: Selected plot for this white Crozes-Hermitage have granitic soils and fluvio-glacial alluvial soils. The Cave de Tain produces more than 50% of this AOC designation.
       
    • Viticulture: Plots’ yields are limited to guarantee an optimum maturity of the grapes.
       
    • Wine-making: This white wine is exclusively produced from the Marsanne grape variety. A meticulous selection of the plots have been done. The wine-making process follows numerous steps: the pneumatic pressing, severe settling, maximum protection against oxidation and thermo-regulated fermentation. This wine rests on dregs inside stainless steel tanks before a hasty bottling.
