Crozes-Hermitage can be considered the gateway to the red and white wines of the Northern Rhône Valley. The reds, which are the majority of production, have wonderful warm flavors of red and black fruit, and typical Syrah pepper, spice and savory notes.
James Suckling 91 - Attractive violets and blue fruit define the nose, as well as pepper and light spicy notes. The palate has a rich and smooth delivery of ripe red plums and cherries. Smooth, supple and balanced. Drink or hold.
Wine & Spirits 90 - Tangy acidity encircles this wine’s rich, creamy lemon flavors, highlighting the purity of the fruit. Estate-grown, it’s simultaneously rich and light, a firm, elegant, savory white for roast scallops.
