One of the finest Crozes out there is the 2016 Crozes Ermitage Les Varonniers, which comes from the northern part of the appellation (right next to Hermitage) and broken granite soils. It’s a full-bodied, impressive barrel sample that has lots of minerality, ample black and blue fruits, and background spice and licorice aromatics. It shows the pure, polished, elegant style of the vintage nicely. This cuvée is also one of the longest-lived Crozes-Hermitage out there and is capable of lasting 20+ years.
This vineyard is on the same granite as Les Bessards in Hermitage, so it's no surprise that the 2016 Crozes Hermitage les Varonniers is a solid wine. It starts off with forward aromas blackberry pie and pastry crust, yet it delivers a structured, slightly restrained experience on the palate. It's not overly tannic, just reined in by crushed stone notes on the lingering finish. (JC) 91-93+
