The white Crozes Hermitage by the Domaine les 4 Vents is labled with the vineyard name "la Rage", which is located in the hamlet of La Roche de Glun. Unusually, it consists of 100% of the grape Marsanne, no Rousanne is used in this wine.
Half of it is aged in 650L Barrels, the so-called demi-muids, the other part in tanks. The wine is rare, in normal years just 1200 bottles leave the cellar of Lucie and Nancy Fournel. The result is a beautifully creamy northern Rhone white wine, fleshy, full and intense, with a loevly long finish and a very good aging potential. We love it.
