The generosity of Crozes-Hermitage is known to lovers of the cru wines of the Rhône based on the noble Syrah grape. The Crozes-Hermitage is located in the northern Rhône appellation which offers the greatest wealth of expression. In terms of surface area and number of winemakers, it is the primary vineyard area of Cave de Tain (16 times larger than the Hermitage vineyard), where we encounter two types of soils: granite and galets (small surface stones) in infinite combinations:
- gravelly and filtering soils of the Rhône or the Isère in the south
- predominantly granite soils in a fresher climate in the north

Crozes-Hermitage extends around the hill of the Hermitage and Cave de Tain has the most beautiful vineyards there. The Crozes-Hermitage has been classified as AOC for red and white wines since 1937. Important rules are that the alcohol percentage must be at least 10% and the yield must not exceed 45 hectoliters per hectare. The red wine must consist of at least 85% of the Syrah grape and a maximum of 15% of Marsanne and Roussanne. The white wine must be composed of Marsanne and Roussanne.

The Cave de Tain Nobles Rives Crozes-Hermitage rouge is a subtle Crozes Hermitage with an intense ruby red color and some purple tones. With aromas of both red (raspberry, plum) and black (blackberry) fruit, some pepper, balsamic vinegar and supple leather. Nicely balanced with the beautiful acids. A very drinkable wine with soft tannins. The wine is subtle and drinkable and therefore delicious in itself. That does not alter the fact that this Syrah looks great on the dining or dinner table. Serve it with grilled red meat (T-bone steak, entrecôte), game dishes or venison steak.
