Crozes-Hermitage 2019: Report and top scoring wines

Matt Walls discovered a number of excellent Crozes-Hermitage wines among the samples tasted for the 2019 vintage report, alongside some that had high alcohol and overripe flavours, with white styles the surprise of the vintage.

The first hailstorm arrived on 15th June, ravaging the southern part of the appellation.

Chapoutier and Yann Chave both lost 50% of their crops, and others, such as Gilles Robin, lost closer to 85%. The second storm hit on 5th July; it wasn’t so severe, but affected areas that were spared by the first. The remaining bunches were further concentrated by the hot, dry weather.
