Pascal Vinificateur, Vacqueyras, France.
Domaine Michel Poinard is a top class but small producer of excellent Crozes Hermitage, in the northern Rhone.
However Yves Cheron at Pascal handles the distribution for him.
In the northern Rhone, the wines are made from 100% Syrah and this wine is a great example. A full bodied wine with sweet stone fruit flavours, some earthiness and oak characters. An aristocrat of a wine worthy of serving at the top table.
