White Crozes Hermitage is rare, just 10% of the wines of this AOC are white. We at Maluni generally have a great passion for the Roussanne / Marsanne white wines of the northern Rhône and their remarkable longlivety.
Nicolas Perrin produces a few bottles of this rare wine, which flavours are reminiscent of beeswax, apricots and flowers. Medium to full bodied on the palate, with a hint of structuring acidity in the background. It tastes well young and has the ability to develop in the bottle for some years.
