Becheras Crozes Hermitage "Le Prieuré d'Arras"Tabula Rasa Shop
Hailing from Northern Rhone, Becheras's Crozes-Hermitage is produced from old vines situated on a steep hillside vineyard. This expressive Syrah has beautiful red fruit and savory characteristics of black tea, pepper, and forest floor. Etienne Becheras’s Domaine which overlooks the Rhone River on the western side is polycultural with plantings of cherry and apricot trees on the flat parts of the vineyard. Northern Rhone is famous for its steep terrain with long terraces supported by hand-constructed stone walls. As a result, almost all work must be done by hand without the aid of mechanical implements.
