Emmanuel Darnaud: presentation of our partner estate
Established high quality producer, good commitment to detail and precision / reasonable use of oak. The vineyards in the southern area of Crozes have grown from 5 to 14 hectares. Emmanuel is potentially one of the brightest and most talented winemakers in the Crozes Hermitage AOC, highly reputed in the Rhône. His first wine dates from the 2001 vintage, he is the son of a winegrower. There are now three red vintages of Crozes, with Les Trois Chênes and the new Au Fil du Temps, both including Syrah vines from the 1950s.
In 2013, Emmanuel took over the work and wine production on his father-in-law Bernard Faurie's land in St Joseph - 1.7 hectares, mainly Syrah on an excellent site in Tournon - Dardouille - while he has another hectare planted in St Jo as well.
