Cave de Tain

Stephen Brook

Tasting: Crozes-Hermitage 2010

Bright cherry nose, has intensity, but these aromas are atypical. Rich, plump, juicy, rounded, plush and forward, but kicked into life by good acidity. Accessible now but has the structure and grip to keep going and evolve further. Mocha on the finish.

Simon Field MW

Tasting: Crozes-Hermitage 2010

Youthful in hue, with expressive red and black fruits vying for attention on the nose; palate is broad and rounded, with just the vaguest hint of over-extraction. Long and assertive, this agrable wine has well defined acidity and rounded tannins.

John Livingstone-Learmonth

Tasting: Crozes-Hermitage 2010

Cooked plum front air, with a thyme, hay, spring flower scenting – a gentle start. The palate is well made up, all in harmony, the fruit rolling along well throughout. Good drinkability, and easy, effortless length. Soft finale, which is also pretty complete.
