Domaine Combier

The Combier family first moved from the Ardèche to the Rhône in 1936 when Camille Combier bought three hectares of vines in the Crozes-Hermitage appellation , and sold his wine to the Tain l'Hermitage co-operative. The domaine is now run by Laurent Combier, a very practical, open minded winemaker, who produces a lush, exuberant and rich style of wine. He believes that in order to make a great wine, he must allow nature to dictate his work in the vineyards, and bases his decisions on the soils, the living organisms and the lunar calendar. His 13 hectares of vineyards, situated on the ‘Les Chassis’ plateau are farmed organically. The modern winery, built in 1990, is situated between Tain l’Hermitage and Pont de l’Isère. If you love pure, unadulterated, concentrated Syrah, look no further!

Tasting Notes

A deep blackberry bouquet, intense and fruity, helped by plenty of "pigeage". The palate is intense, fresh with a delicious cassis-like character.

Food Matches

Delicious with beef meatballs with a tomato ragu.
