The greatest Crozes-Hermitage Domaine de Thalabert since the magnificent 1990 is the 2009. Jaboulet has nearly 100 acres in this appellation and the 2009 which is bursting with potential represents a great buy for Syrah lovers. Its dense purple color is followed by an explosive bouquet of blackberries sweet cherries licorice Provencal olives graphite and subtle smoke. Full-bodied with silky tannins as well as a terrific mouthfeel and palate penetration this gorgeous offering should drink well for 15 or more years. One needs no further evidence of the extraordinary turn around in the quality of the Jaboulet wines than what proprietress Caroline Frey has accomplished in 2009 as well as 2010. As I indicated last year this is one of the great qualitative turn arounds in the wine world. It is welcomed by all wine lovers given the historic legacy of the wines of Jaboulet and the importance of this famous firm in all of France...

Juicy focused and very fruity offering sweet dark berry flavors with an intense mineral underpinning. Finishes sappy and smooth showing impressive clarity and lingering mineral-accented dark fruit character. -JR
