Dominated by its minerality with moderate tannins the 2010 Crozes-Hermitage Le Clos is a sleeper of the vintage. Last year from barrel this offering revealed high acidity and some reduction but it is now performing on all cylinders. While not significantly superior to the charming 2011 the 2010 is a ripe dense full-bodied Crozes offering sweet notes of black currants black cherries licorice smoke and an enticing minerality running through the flavor profile. This full-bodied red is capable of lasting 12-15+ years. 92+

Features a fleshy feel, with mulled cherry and blackberry fruit mixed with plum coulis, backed by an anise edge on the modestly toasted finish. Drink now through 2016. – JM

Chewy and deeply pitched, offering an array of dark fruit flavors and a hint of licorice. The polar opposite of the graceful 2011 version. Closes sappy and long, with persistent spiciness and firm tannins. This wine needs time to stretch its legs. 90+
