Saturated, deep black-red in colour with a pure, exuberant and exciting scent mingling notes of smoke, bramble, blackberry, blackcurrant and redcurrant. The flavours are joyful. There’s a fruit core of singing lyricism, both vivid and fresh without being acidulous; the wine is tannic enough to give its fruit shape and gravitas but not roughness or austerity; and it has overtones which bring light and shade to the wine via faint notes of smoke, of cleansing bitterness, of the saltiness which is such a hallmark of parts of Crozes, and of the ‘stony’ flavours which lovers of terroir wine crave. A gorgeous success. (AJ)
Bright purple. A complex, expansive bouquet evokes ripe dark berries, vanilla and floral pastilles, along with suggestions of licorice, woodsmoke and olive paste. Broad and fleshy on the palate, offering sweet black and blue fruit, cola and spicecake flavors supported by a spine of juicy acidity. Rich yet energetic in style, finishing smooth and very long, with slow-building tannins and lingering spiciness. (JR)
An absolutely terrific value, the 2015 Crozes Hermitage Grand Classique is like a mini-Hermitage this year, boasting hints of crushed stone, pencil shavings and rich, concentrated, plummy fruit. It's firm and long, with licorice notes on the finish. (JC)
Aromas of spiced berries and a biscuit note. Plush, juicy and fresh, red-fruited palate that has a lot to offer already.
