Les Pends is considered by many to be one of the top single vineyard growing sites in the Crozes-Hermitage appellation. Unforgivingly steep, this site possesses very little topsoil but plenty of bedrock.
High-toned with rich, fresh berry fruit tinged with garrigue aromas and white pepper lead into a thick, saturated wine in the mouth. Ripe, well-coated tannins provide ample backbone for several years of age, though it will be tough to keep your hands off this beauty.
