Syrah

Les Marguerites comes from an exceptional single parcel located on the backside of the Hermitage hill, just above the town of Crozes. Named Pierre Aiguille (Stone Needle), the vineyard is set in a natural amphitheater, with triple exposure to the south, west, and east. Before Nancy and Julien took over the vines in 2012, the entire production was sold off to négociants. The organic transition was difficult for the vines, but they are seeing a real difference. The Cecillons officially became the owners of this parcel in 2020. The cuvée is named in honor of their mothers and grandmothers.
