Stephen Brook

Tasting: Crozes-Hermitage 2010

Slightly herbaceous nose but has some finesse. Touch of mocha. Medium-bodied, sleek, quite concentrated, peppery. It’s stylish rather than weighty and seems quite forward. Pungent finish, a touch dry.

Simon Field MW

Tasting: Crozes-Hermitage 2010

Smoke, polished leather aromas plus morello cherry and pebble stone. . It’s stylish rather than weighty with pepper and soft spice underpinning the black fruit core.

John Livingstone-Learmonth

Tasting: Crozes-Hermitage 2010

Smoke, polished leather airs, rather vibrant black fruit, prune present in nose, a meaty depth, too. Palate holds good running fruit, black berries with a stiffening of texture from flinty, fine grain tannins late on. Crisp finale. Grills avec.
