Crozes-Hermitage Blanc Domaine Les Hauts de Mercurol
Crozes-Hermitage Blanc Domaine Les Hauts de Mercurol is produced from 100% Marsanne on the steep slopes of the northern Rhône. A lean, dry white with pronounced mineral flavours, lemony hints and a rounded texture.

Located behind the tower overlooking the village of Mercurol, at an altitude of 260 metres, the vineyard of Domaine Les Hauts de Mercurol stretches over 7ha in Crozes Hermitage red as well as a small plot of white on the famous hillside Pends.

Some vines were planted 48 years ago. New plantations were carried out in 1985 and 1990. The grape varieties are Syrah for the reds and Marsanne for the whites. The grapes are harvested by hand and cooled as soon as received in the vat and before pneumatic pressing. The vinification and aging cellar was completely renovated in 2004.
