Cave de Tain
Crozes-Hermitage Blanc 2010
The Cave de Tain is a major producer of Crozes-Hermitage, considering it their specialty. This appellation can offer rare value in the Northern Rhone Valley, and Cave de Tain, as this 100% Marsanne shows, is no exception. Bright and fresh, this is perfect for outdoor sipping.
