Domaine Melody

Stephen Brook

Tasting: Crozes-Hermitage 2010

Spicy minty oaky nose, has lift and charm. Medium-bodied, supple, easygoing, fresh and lively. Has good acidity but lacks some depth and grip. Rather simple.

Simon Field MW

Tasting: Crozes-Hermitage 2010

Youthful of hue and aromatic, with fermentation aromas still lingering, bacon rind and charcoal behind it. Palate a little unformed, young vine promise without the desired mid-palate harmony.

John Livingstone-Learmonth

Tasting: Crozes-Hermitage 2010

Bonny robe; reductive, peppery, dusty air, sleek black fruit within. Palate bears juiced black fruit with a dust side to it, a rail of restraint after half way. Assertive spot of dark berry fruit on aftertaste, some heat. Food best.
