Gilles Robin is the new and young face of Crozes-Hermitage! A good friend and from the same generation as Jean-Louis Chave – Gilles is the new star. Readers should remember this name.
He has only 5 hectares planted in the southern part of the Crozes Appellation, on very well drained soils, that were originally planted with fruit trees. Low yields is his secret to success, “Syrah needs to be ripe toexpress its full character” says Gilles. Gilles is not interested in trends and his wines remain loyal to tradition. They are wines he likes drinking, but without compromise in quality, they are pure, intense, full-bodied and tightly structured.
