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 44 acres 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 to reduce the quantity and maximize the quality. 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.
2019 was an amazing year for the Northern Rhone. Wine Spectator blessed this vintage with a 96-point review, stating that "Reds are very concentrated and defined, with copious fruit."
Tasting Notes:100% Syrah. The wine’s crimson-flecked amaranth hue complements an intense nose of red and black fruits 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. The more patient wine lover will discover that the wine can age nicely for up to ten years.
The 2019 Pierre Le Grand Saint Joseph is a medium to full-bodied effort marked by ample concentration and firm (but ripe) tannins. Hints of cracked pepper appear on the nose, joined by black cherries and a touch of vanilla, while the finish is long and velvety.~91 Points, Robert Parker.
