About the Wine

The wines of Pierre Le Grand are specially crafted cuvees made by Domaine Jean-Pierre Mucyn, one of the young rising stars in the northern Rhone. The estate is located in the village of Gervans in the heart of the appellation of Crozes-Hermitage. Jean-Pierre and Helene Mucyn studied enology in Beaune and started the Domaine in 2001. 2018 Pierre Le Grand Crozes-Hermitage comes from 40-year-old vines.

Today the Domaine has 18 hectares in the appellations of Crozes-Hermitage (11.5Ha), Saint Joseph (4.5Ha), Cornas (1.5Ha), and IGP Collines Rhondaniennes (1Ha). The vineyards are sustainably maintained and the estate uses de-budding, leaf pulling, and green harvesting when required. The grapes are hand-harvested and the wines are made using 100% destemmed fruit. The wines here present wonderful bright fruit and lush middle palate ripeness with an ever-present terroir identity.

Tasting Notes:100% Syrah. The wine’s crimson-flecked amaranth hue complements an intense nose of red and black fruits (Morello cherries, blackcurrants) and mocha, with spicy and licorice notes. On the palate, the wine shows fruit, a charming, slightly textured velvety body, and fat which coats the palate with savory tannins. The finish is long. Les Entrecoeurs can be enjoyed in its youth for those unable to wait. The more patient wine lover will discover that the wine can age nicely for up to ten years.

Reviews

Delicate swathes of eucalyptus and bramble accent pristine blackberry and plum in this juicy, immediately inviting Syrah. Full-bodied and freshly concentrated, it's a vibrant red-edged by an elegant granitic spine. Fine, delicately lingering tannins add to its easy appeal. Best now–2026. ~90 Wine Enthusiast
