Domaine Etienne Pochon

Along with a handful of other growers, the rather reserved Etienne Pochon has been instrumental in improving the quality and the image of Crozes-Hermitage and is producing some of the region’s finest and most elegant wines. In the late 80s, having studied as an agricultural engineer, Etienne converted the dungeons of his family’s fortified château into a winery which received its first grapes in 1988. Until that point Etienne, like his father before him, had been a co-opérateur. His best vines are situated around the château on the stony, infertile Côteaux. Etienne Pochon produces his wines with care and precision. They are aged partly in large oak ‘foudres’ and partly in tank, and are bottled early to capture all the freshness of their fruit. Vignobles Bruniers

Tasting Notes

Fresh, floral notes on the bouquet and a palate with bags of complexity and a well balanced acidity.
