Emmanuel Darnaud started his domaine in 2001 with just 1.3 hectares of vines but now has 15 hectares, all in Crozes-Hermitage.
His painstaking work in the vineyard and regard for the fruit in the vinification process have ensured his place amongst the “big boys” with his first 2001 vintage.
The quality of his wines has earned him great praise in French and international revues, as well as a place in many Michelin-starred restaurants.
"If you like dark, rich, smoky-styled Syrah, this is a domaine for you to try."J. Molesworth.
