2016 Crozes-Hermitage 'Clos de Grives' Combier
Maurice and Laurent Combier in Crozes-Hermitage farm organic apricots and peaches, famous all over France. 'Clos des Grives' is their best vineyard--situated next to Alain Graillot's holdings. The site is mostly red clay and chalk with alluvial soils. They ferment in cement eggs, and finish in 25% new oak and 75% second- and third-passage oak for 12 months, giving a rich, full-bodied accessible wine with hints of oak.
