Nothing beats a magnum of great wine. It looks sensational, tastes sensational, and lasts much longer than a normal bottle.

Crozes Hermitage is a big region by northern Rhone standards… but all the best stuff hides out on the gentle, sun-exposed slopes of the northern side of the Rhone river. And that’s exactly where you’ll find Laurent’s vineyards.

In the best years, Laurent picks out his best plot, and names the wine after one of his team. Laurent skipped a year in 2018 because the quality wasn’t sky-high enough, but 2019 was a belter. So he made this wine and named it after his viticulturist, Sylvain.

The vineyards behind this wine are old - up to 70 years - and have been farmed organically since 2008. This was the first year Laurent bottled his wines without sulphites - his aim is to achieve the purest, most artisanal representation of the special place he grows his vines.

You get a deep, dark savoury nose, with lovely violet notes. On the palate it’s complex, dense and peppery - you can really taste the step-up in quality.
