Domaine Combier is based on the plateau of La Roche de Glun, its vines located at the foot of the hill of Hermitage. The Combiers came to Pont de l’Isère 1962 and concentrated on growing fruit and apricots. It became clear that some of their land was adjacent to that of a young vigneron by the name of Alain Graillot. The transition to vines has been wholly successful and Laurent’s wines are now considered every bit as good as those of his great friend next door. Their top wine Crozes-Hermitage, Les Grives comes from the 1952 plot of the Clos des Grives: ten hectares of almost perfect Syrah.
