Variety

Pinot Noir

Before he took over Domaine de la Cras in 2014, Marc purchased a tiny 0.20 ha parcel of Bourgogne Rouge in Ladoix. He named this wine "Hermaion", from the greek word meaning something good that happens to you by chance. These old vines are treated as the grand cuvée chez Soyard, vinified using whole cluster semi-carbonic fermentation and aged for 18 months in barrels.
