Domaine les Alexandrins

Northern Rhône , northern rhone France

Domaine Les Alexandrins was founded in 2009 by two friends, viticulturalist Alexandre Caso and winemaker Guillaume Sorrel, son of Hermitage producer Marc Sorrel. The cellar, located in the village of Mercurol, is in a 17th century farmhouse right on the plain of Crozes-Hermitage. In 2015, they partnered with Nicolas Jaboulet for the Domaine and Maison Les Alexandrins wines. As the name suggests, the wines from Domaine Les Alexandrins are made from fruit which comes from their own vineyards.

The wines come from 12 hectares of vineyards that are sustainably farmed. The soils in the Crozes-Hermitage vineyards consists of round pebbles, while the Saint-Joseph vines are grown on granite slopes.

Both wines are made in the same way with fermentation in stainless steel, gentle punch downs and pumping over to extract silky tannins. Also, both wines undergo malolactic fermentation in barrel and are then aged in used oak barrels (ranging from one to four years old). The judicious use of oak allows the fragrance of the Syrah (violets and black pepper) to shine through. The Crozes-Hermitage has abundant red fruits and is true to Crozes-Hermitage, being the most approachable of the two wines. The Saint-Joseph, from 40-year-old vines, has more concentration and structure.
