Fayolle Fils & Fille

Stephen Brook

Tasting: Crozes-Hermitage 2010

Ripe juicy blackberry nose. Ripe, generous, full-bodied, concentrated and tannic, oaky and chocolaty, works hard to impress and largely succeeds. Just lacks some pep and vigour, though it’s quite long.

Simon Field MW

Tasting: Crozes-Hermitage 2010

Subtle nose of hedgerow with hints of incense and iodine; the palate is agreeably broad-shouldered, youthfully assertive with a fragrant backdrop from the Forest of Arden, or maybe a few degrees further south!

John Livingstone-Learmonth

Tasting: Crozes-Hermitage 2010

Oak lies on outside of nose, gives it a caramel side; its fruit is subdued, secondary. Palate a mixed bag, oak and fruit not fused, oak is the last, dry impact. The fruit is a bit stretched. Needs the help of time.
