2017 David Reynaud Crozes Hermitage Cuvee Beaumont
In 1955, Georges Reynaud planted 20 hectares of vines on a gentle slope along the Isère River (Rhône tributary) in the southern sector of Crozes-Hermitage. Domaine Les Bruyères is located in Beaumont-Monteux, one of the appellation’s eleven communes.
Through the 2002 vintage, the family’s grapes were sold to the local cooperative winery, but the following year, Georges Reynaud’s then 28-year-old grandson, David, completed construction of a modern winemaking facility just in time for the 2003 crush. Upon assuming control of the domaine a few years earlier, David instituted an organic regimen in the vineyard, so the domaine was certified by Ecocert the same year (2003) as his first crush. Further research and experimentation, and the influence of friends like Matthieu Barret of Domaine du Coulet in Cornas, led to the adoption of the principles and practices of biodynamics, and in 2005, Les Bruyères received its Biodyvin certification.
The 2017 ‘Beaumont’ comes from younger vines and is made for earlier drinking, vinified in cement and aged in oak. Vibrant & bright, full of dark fruit and black olive flavors.
