Tasting: Crozes-Hermitage 2010

Lifted if oaky nose, quite elegant. Suave, textured, juicy, full-bodied, with ripe tannins and a good deal of spice. Well balanced, sophisticated, and long, with considerable elegance.

Simon Field MW

Tasting: Crozes-Hermitage 2010

Dense and familiar nose of stewed tea, incense and creme de cassis; the oak is quite persuasive here and threatens to overwhelm the ensemble, yet one senses that with time the rich core of black fruit will pull through and allow this example to shine as one of the very best in its class.

John Livingstone-Learmonth

Tasting: Crozes-Hermitage 2010

Wide, high fruit, impressive style bouquet – is souped up for sweet tooth lovers. Palate bears scented, sappy black fruit with a near cloying nature, is peppered up by tar tannins towards finish. Ends a little drily, beyond the early fruit bluster. Scaled wine, not relaxed.
