Inky colored, the 2016 Crozes-Hermitage Domaine De Thalabert will check in behind the sensational 2015, but is nevertheless a gem of a wine. It offers classic blackberry and currant fruit intermixed with lots of peppery herbs, damp earth and peppery, olive aromas and flavors. With medium to full body, excellent concentration, and ripe tannin, it will keep for 10-15 years.
(20% new oak) Bright violet. Highly perfumed, mineral-accented dark berries, cherry liqueur and candied violet on the nose. At once rich and energetic, offering juicy, focused black raspberry and cherry cola flavors along with a hint of smokiness. Turns sweeter on the lively, penetrating finish, which features sneaky tannins and a strong echo of smoky minerality. (JR)
The 2016 Crozes Hermitage Domaine de Thalabert should be drinkable on release. A prospective blend, loaded with black olives and spice, was silky and long. (JC)
