Florent Viale from Domaine du Colombier.
Wines full of character, especially the cuvée préstige Gaby (named after Florent's father). Florent Viale is a master at making Syrah show its character in the wine. Until 1992 the family sold their wines to the 'négoce' but when they thought that Crozes-Hermitage was becoming sufficiently well known on its own they decided to make the wine themselves. So they invested in all necessary wine making equipment and the have never regretted it. Crozes-Hermitage, northern Rhone, France.
