Domaine Marc Sorrel
Rhone Valley, France
Marc inherited two hectares of vines from his family and later acquired another two more hectares located in Hermitage and Crozes-Hermitage. Marc farms organically with his syrah located in the leux-dits of Les Bessards, Les Greffieux, and Les Plantiers. The marsanne and roussanne are farmed in Les Rocoules and Le Gréal with a 60-year-old parcel in the Méal vineyard.
Marc constructs three reds wines; Hermitage, Hermitage Le Gréal, and Crozes-Hermitage. His white wines consist of two bottlings; Hermitage blanc and Hermitage Les Roucoules. Marc's approach to winemaking is non-interventionist and traditional. Whole cluster grapes, used oak barrels, and the wines age in oak at least 24 months before bottling.
