Cave de Tain

Stephen Brook

Tasting: Crozes-Hermitage 2010

Smoky black fruits nose, quite toasty. Medium-bodied, certainly ripe, but has edgy acidity. This is gawky and less sophisticated than the nose, and fades on the finish. A bit weedy.

Simon Field MW

Tasting: Crozes-Hermitage 2010

Attractive nose, floral and fruity in equal measure, with a spicy backdrop; palate is harmonious with generous sweet fruit, strident tannins and an assertive finish.

John Livingstone-Learmonth

Tasting: Crozes-Hermitage 2010

Plump style aroma which is not on full form today, has potential, comes with a soft spicing. The palate delivers mature red stone fruit with sealed, gummy tannins attached. This is close to its summit, even if nose is not very open – the matter is a little baked. Ends with some firmness.
