Domain: Les Bruyères Sitting in the heart of the Crozes-Hermitage appellation, Domaine Les Bruyère is managed by the passionate David Reynaud. He presides over a total of 28 hectares of vines (he owns 20 and buys the grapes from 8) which he has converted to organic and biodynamic viticulture. Reynaud gives prominence to Syrah, the indigenous grape variety representing 87% of the total vine population, complemented by Merlot and Viognier. Yields are controlled to around 35 hectolitres per hectare, growing on terraces which present a mixture of limestone, clay and pebble. Wines are vinified and matured in an underground cellar. When the grapes come in, they are go into concrete vats for the reds and stainless steel vats for the whites.
