Producer Description

Domaine du Colombier is owned and managed by the very tall, Florent Viale. At close to 6'8," he could have chosen to play basketball instead of make wine in Hermitage. While the vineyards has been owned by the Viale family since the first part of the 20th century, prior to 1991, the crop from Domaine du Colombier was sold to negociants. After that date, they began to produce, bottle and sell their wine. Domaine du Colombier is located in the village of Mercurol which is just slightly due east of Tain, and next to the hill of Hermitage. Domaine du Colombier owns 12 hectares of vines in the Northern Rhone Valley, 1.6 hectares in Hermitage. In Crozes Hermitage, they have 9.2 hectares for red wine varieties and 1.2 hectares reserved for white wine in Crozes-Hermitage. In Hermitage, they have old vines as much of their plantings of Syrah are between 50 to 55 years of age that is planted on granite hillsides. Until recently, the only white wine grape planted was Marsanne. However, they have recently added Roussanne to their vineyards. Their terroir in Crozes Hermitage has granite, along with clay, limestone. chalk and rocks. Domaine du Colombier produces red Hermitage wine and Hermitage Blanc. In Crozes Hermitage, they also produce 3 red wines and 2 white wines. Domaine du Colombier Hermitage rouge is made from 100% old, vine Syrah. The vines are planted in three lieu-dits, "les Baumes, "Peleat" and "La grande Diogniere." The wine is aged for 18 months in 30% new, French oak barrels.
