The white Crozes-Hermitage from Domaine les 4 Vents bears the vineyard name "la Rage", which is located in the hamlet of La Roche de Glun. Unusually, it consists of 100% Marsanne grape variety, without the Roussanne cuvée that is otherwise common in the region. Half of it is matured in 600L barrels and so-called demi-muids and in tanks. The wine is rare; in normal years just 1,200 bottles leave Lucie and Nancy Fournel's cellar. The result is a beautifully creamy Northern Rhône white wine, fleshy, full and intense, with a very long finish and very good aging potential. We love him.

In 2022, a great unique piece was achieved again, light golden yellow color, oily-looking at the edge. The scent doesn't hide, it literally jumps out of the glass with its ripe pear notes, a hint of wood and a little straw.

What fascinates me about this wine, and also about other great white Northern Rhône wines, is that at first contact you think: oh my God, what a club this is. It's impossible to drink the bottle empty. You then subtly immerse yourself in the fascinating world of aromas of this wine; it challenges you and captivates you at the same time. At some point, almost unnoticed, the bottle is empty and you are happy. Frank Rembold in September 2020 about the 2019 vintage.
