Coming from a small three-hectare plot of granite soils in the northern part of the appellation (which is the prime terroir), the blockbuster 2012 Crozes Hermitage Domaine Raymond Roure exhibits incredible minerality in its black raspberry, olive tapenade, spring flower, and subtle chocolate-laced aromatics. Tasting like it was filtered through a bed of rocks, it’s full-bodied, thrillingly concentrated and has superb underlying structure. In short, it’s a smoking Crozes Hermitage to drink anytime over the coming 15+ years. Unfortunately, there’s only 500 cases made. (JD)
Opaque ruby. Sexy, high-pitched dark berry and floral pastille aromas are complicated by suggestions of olive and star anise. Juicy, focused and pure, displaying excellent verve to its mineral-laced black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors. Shows real depth as well as an almost weightless quality. The mineral element adds lift and precision to a strikingly long, subtly tannic finish that emphatically repeats the floral and berry notes. (JR)
Ripe and dense, with steeped plum and warm black currant confiture notes at the core, backed by ample charcoal and toasted tobacco leaf notes. A lingering tarry edge lends this a grippy feel. Best from 2016 through 2021. (Web-2015)
