North Rhone flagship promotes Hermitage Heritage
Cave de Tain, a flagship of the Rhone Valley, will be showcasing its latest innovations at Vinexpo Bordeaux. These innovations have emerged from the wealth of its terroir and the ingenuity of its oenologists, as well as the signature products in their new vintage.
Since its creation in 1933, successive generations of winegrowers have made the Cave de Tain a jewel of the Northern Rhone Valley. Thanks to them, it enjoys unparalleled diversity in terms of its location and access to all the terroirs of ve northern Rhone ‘crus’ vineyards.
Hermitage, the mythical name of the Northern Rhone Valley, is the pride and joy of Cave de Tain. At Vinexpo, Cave de Tain will introduce its vision of the Hermitage hill and the emblematic marsanne, roussanne and syrah, through four complementary and immersive expressions: Hermitage Grand Classique Red 2015, Hermitage Grand Classique White 2016, Gambert de Loche 2011, 2013 and 2015 (named after Cave de Tain founder Louis Gambert de Loche) and Epsilon 2009 and 2015, an exceptional vintage, made from grapes of hundred-year-old vines, planted on the Hermite and Méal terroirs. Cave de Tain’s philosophy isn’t just about making more wine, it’s also about making wine to match the plot, and exploring new routes. In this spirit, the Cave de Tain will introduce new vintages at Vinexpo Bordeaux which reflect this bold mindset: Epure Red 2015, a unique gem of the Crozes-Hermitage appellation, from a selection of plots in the Baume sector on the plateau of the Tour de Mercurol, stored in 2,500 bottles and a few magnums; The Exploration Collection, a red and white, syrah and marsanne, duo, vintage 2018, from the Crozes-Hermitage appellation developed without added sulphites; and a tasty 2018 red Syrah, from the IGP Collines Rhodaniennes vineyards.
