Stephen Brook

Tasting: Crozes-Hermitage 2010

Rich blackberry nose, splendid fruit. Sumptuous without being heavy, very concentrated, with a lot of spice and pepper. Has admirable typicity and discreet power. Delicious fruit and no rough edges. Good length.

Simon Field MW

Tasting: Crozes-Hermitage 2010

Spicy black fruit nose with a medicinal character, which is slightly resinous; palate is a little drying, almost over-extracted thus undermining the potential purity of its fruit character.

John Livingstone-Learmonth

Tasting: Crozes-Hermitage 2010

Toasted, oak pistachio nut airs, oak a touch green, black berry fruit inside. Strong charcoal, clumsy oaking on the palate, not sure about this, lacks integration, Cellar dominated wine, the poor old vineyard is second best.
