It offers a layered, multi-dimensional, full-bodied texture as well as classic notes of plums, blackberries, ground pepper, and incense. This complex beauty has subtle oak, a wealth of fruit, and terrific balance. Give bottles a year or two and enjoy over the following decade. collapse

Powerful, highly perfumed aromas of blueberry, cherry liqueur, olive, exotic spices and candied violet are complicated by a smoky mineral accent. Sappy, alluringly sweet and densely packed, offering palate-staining dark fruit preserve, vanilla, spicecake and floral pastille flavors that become livelier as the wine stretches out. The floral and mineral notes repeat emphatically on a strikingly long, velvety finish framed by smooth, harmonious tannins. This wine is sourced from two small plots in Larnage that were planted between 70 and 80 years ago. One-third new oak. -- Josh Raynolds collapse

Pencil shavings frame plummy fruit in this medium to full-bodied effort. The suave, fine-grained tannins come close to being silky in feel on the lingering finish. This is the rare Crozes-Hermitage that's capable of rivaling Hermitage itself. - JC collapse
