Stephen Brook

Tasting: Crozes-Hermitage 2010

Rich plummy nose, with abundant oak. Suave and plump, with ample concentration and acidity. Has spice and vigour though the length is far from exceptional and the finish is rather blunt. But a good mouthful of fruit.

Simon Field MW

Tasting: Crozes-Hermitage 2010

Aromatic nose of violet, liquorice and hints of eucalypt. Palate is finely balanced, with cassis and blueberry fruit finely embedded on a gentle backdrop, with quite assertive tannins to support and nurture the edifice.

John Livingstone-Learmonth

Tasting: Crozes-Hermitage 2010

Peppery, dust outer, jolly black fruit inner to bouquet, stylish fruit, not forced. Palate runs with free juicy fruit. Texture supple, pleasing. Scented drift towards the finish, which darkens on some liquorice. Good, typical Crozes, bang on.
