1952 – 2012: Announcing the official release of the 2012 Clos des Grives in this new video, Domaine Combier celebrates 60 years of history of a unique Clos in Crozes Hermitage. On this occasion, the label of its legendary cuvée from Rhône Valley will benefit from a “re-lifting” before being delivered on October 1st to the historical customers of the wine estate.
If its rare white wine and its unique red wine made it a key reference in the Rhone Valley, Domaine Combier’s Clos des Grives is, first of all, a true family affair. In 1952 with the first vines replanted by the grandfather Camille, then with the introduction of organic farming in 1970 by Maurice and finally with the take-over of the wine estate by Laurent Combier in 1990. This terroir, where Syrah and Roussanne vines live together in harmony, produces great vintages.
Laurent Combier: “On the occasion of this 60th anniversary, we decided to change the release date of the 2012 Clos des Grives to October 1 so that it has a prolonged aging in our cellars. This
beautiful vintage is very balanced, with a great finesse. I love its sensuality.”
Ideally located between the Alps and the Rhone river, Clos des Grives gives birth annually to a beautiful wine with unique velvety, complexity and finesse. An alliance of red fruits, flowers and spices, the wine is both intense and delicate. Its density and balance make it a great wine with an admirable aging potential. Watch the Video.
