Laurent Habrard is a dynamic young producer based in the village of Gervans in the Northern Rhone. A 5th-generation winemaker, he works with 15 hectares of organically certified old vineyards in Crozes Hermitage and Hermitage. His holdings in the former are spread across the appellation, allowing him to create blends of great complexity.
He works with the bare minimum of sulphur and employs some very traditional methods including treading the grapes by foot which he believes gives the red wines softness and gentle, even extraction. The quality is superb across the board, with recent awards suggesting Laurent is a star of the future.
