François Tardy signe un crozes-hermitage issu d'un terroir difficile à travailler, qu'il cultive pourtant avec des méthodes biologiques et biodynamiques. Une jolie cuvée qui se révèle tout en finesse avec le temps. More info

This cuvée owes its name to the proximity of the hillsides to the Arlettes limestone massif which allows the formation of special silicas called "chailles". Syrah vines, 40 years old, have been certified organic since 2016 but biodynamic principles have been used. Naturally, the harvest is manual. The fermentation is carried out with indigenous yeasts and the grapes macerate for several weeks in stainless steel vats with two daily rounds of pump-down and pump-over to extract all their substance and colour. Rich and powerful, Les Chaillés is beautifully tense and tangy. This wine can be enjoyed both young and up to fifteen years later.

Crozes-Hermitage Les Pends Domaine des Entrefaux serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Magrets de canard en croûte de sel, Noisettes de chevreuil, sauce aux airelles, Crumble d agneau à la ratatouille confite.

    Information about domain Domaine des Entrefaux

    Located in Chanos-Curson, Domaine des Entrefaux spans 28 hectares in the Crozes-Hermitages appellation. This family domaine is managed by Charles et François Tardy, two winemakers committed to expressing the diversity of their terroir as faithfully as possible. They started the transition to organic viticulture some years ago and received certification in 2011. They also practice a few biodynamic methods to help sustain microbial life in the vineyard and prevent disease. They till the soils, cover crop the vines and limit yields; The vineyard is sits on a stony terrace called ‘Les Chassis” and is planted mostly to Syrah with 4 hectares of Marsanne and Roussane. They have also just acquired two hectares of Viognier and Chardonnay that they vinify as a Vin de Pays. Work in the winery tries to let nature lead where possible. No yeast is added and only a minimal amount of sulphur. Elevage takes place in oak and vats. This is a domaine that produces excellent wines with fresh fruit aromas at reasonable prices.
