Dom. Mucyn 2020 Crozes Hermitage Rouge " Les Entrecoeurs"
After the pitfalls of a torrid 2015 vintage so skillfully negotiated by the Mucyns, the more proportionate 2016 vintage came as a welcome balm. This is an effortlessly graceful and vibrant Syrah, seductively easy to drink now but with a balance suggestive of at least a healthy middle age. The 2020 is suave and delicious.
The harvested grapes are destemmed but not crushed, and undergo a phase of cold pre-fermentation maceration. Alcoholic fermentation then kicks off and lasts for three weeks. with soft tannins
Maceration is assisted with daily cap-punching operations. Jean-Pierre Mucyn prefers a moderate extraction resulting in lush, fruity wines
