Description

The wine story

Robert and Yvette Michelas started the domain in 1961. The family now owns 120 acres called the Michelas St Jemms estate. Since 1988, their four children Sylvie, Florence, Corinne and Sebastien have taken over the winery and produce red and white wines in four prestigious appellations.

The undersoil is clay, lime and granite with a topsoil of pebbles from the Rhone River in the lowest parts… the slope is often steep, so some parcels are hand harvested and horse-ploughed.

There are successive harvests to keep only the perfectly ripe grapes.

This wine comes from four different terroirs vinified separately. The blending is done just before bottling. The wine is certified HEV (High Environmental Value) because they follow eco-friendly methods. It is very tasty with an intense golden color.

Favorite Pairing

As an aperitif, with tapas or almonds. With fish, seafood, poultry and pork with herbs, vegetarian dishes. With an apricot tart.

The Region

Crozes Hermitage is situated on the left bank of the Rhone Valley as the great river flows down from the Alps mountains to the Mediterranean Sea. it is 130km north from the other famous Rhône Valley wine: Chateauneuf du Pape, so the climate is a bit cooler and drier. The local varieties are the only ones authorized here and thrive in ideal conditions of climate and soil. Learn more about this region at: Sommailier.com/wineregions
