Category: France, RHÔNE, Domaine des Entrefaux (Organic), 2015

Although the Tardy family have been growing grapes for generations, they only began to estate-bottle their Crozes-Hermitage in 1979. Now they are well established and reputable producers. Father and son, Charles and François farm 21 hectares of Syrah on the pebbly limestone terrace of Les Chassis, known for producing the finest Crozes-Hermitage reds and a further 6 hectares of white varieties, mainly Marsanne with a little Roussane. In 2000, they began implementing organic farming practices, and in 2012 they earned their official certification.
