Our wines – Maison Lombard

The “Maison Lombard” wines are our “négociant” wines, made with grapes purchased from the best growers in other beautiful Northern Rhône regions such as Crozes-Hermitage, Hermitage and Cornas.

The “MAISON LOMBARD” RANGE
CROZES HERMITAGE

 

Crozes Hermitage 2014
100% Marsanne
5,000 bottles per year

A white wine with great minerality, fermented and aged exclusively in concrete to preserve the lemony and refreshing character of this superb grape variety.

When young, the wine’s citrus and fennel aromas make it a great partner for scallop tartare and delicate fish like bream of John Dory.

After laying down for two more years, the wine will develop additional buttery and salty notes, which will pair well with complex dishes like a tagine flavored with preserved lemons.

Crozes Hermitage 2014
100% Syrah
10,000 bottles per year

Whole cluster fermentation lends this full-bodied wine a real savoriness and great length on the palate.

The delicate tannic structure and aromas of crushed strawberry make this wine drinkable today, full of energy and flavor. With time, more powerful aromas of leather and truffle will evolve, further elevating this wine.

Without doubt, our favorite dish with this wine is a rack of lamb with spring vegetables.

HERMITAGE

 

Hermitage 2014
100% Marsanne
1,000 bottles per year

We choose the cream of the crop from the famous Hermitage Hill to bring to life our vision of Hermitage white wine.

The opening notes of the bouquet offer a burst of candied apricot and jasmine. The palate is more nuanced, with carefully balanced blend of savory mature notes.

This magnificent wine calls for equally timeless dishes. Pair it with broiled lobster tails, a homemade fish stew, or the unrivaled simplicity of a mature cheese.

Hermitage 2014
100% Syrah
1,000 bottles per year

We choose the cream of the crop from the famous Hermitage Hill to bring to life our vision of Hermitage red wine.

This splendid wine is dense and complex. It is best consumed after cellaring for a few more years, which will soften and integrate the cocoa bean notes.

On the palate, this wine is generous and precise, with well-structured tannins and a delightful earthiness.

It is perfect for special occasions, accompanied by a white truffle risotto or roasted quail with mushrooms.

CORNAS

 

Cornas 2014
100% Syrah
1,000 bottles per year

Not being aged in oak makes this a rare Cornas wine.

We wanted to make a full-bodied, dense wine without oak that still reflects the voluptuousness and full-fruit flavors of a traditional Cornas wine. Instead of oak, we opted for a long aging period – 24 months in concrete vats.

The bouquet is filled with light tobacco and mocha aromas and the palate is smooth, dense and enveloping.

With a long and lightly mineral finish, it is a perfect wine for winter dishes like coq au vin or a casserole.
