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. Today the Domaine has 18 hectares in the appellations of Crozes-Hermitage, Saint Joseph, Cornas, and IGP Collines Rhondaniennes. 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. 

Gamsy hails from hills in the Ardèche, with a sandy-gravelly soil composed of weathered granite. As the name suggests, this wine is associated with freedom and wide-open spaces. Freedom in terms of the grape varieties planted, where we are able to combine the Syrah, the Queen of the Rhône Valley, with the Gamay. 60% of one and 40% of the other. This is an original combination resulting in an original wine

Tasting Notes: Red Wine. 60% Syrah and 40% Gamay. Easy-to-drink and refreshing, Gamsy proudly displays its dense, crimson-flecked hue. Its intense nose offers up notes of tangy red fruit such as blackcurrants and redcurrants. It shows nice length on the palate with soft tannins and a lovely spicy finish. Enjoyed when young with a platter of charcuterie or light cheeses. It is also great for a barbecue.
