E. Guigal Crozes-Hermitage 2015 (92 JD)
“The deep purple-colored 2015 Crozes Hermitage showed beautifully from barrel, and now from bottle. Black cherries, blueberries, peppery herbs, black olive and lots of rocky minerality all flow to a rich, beautifully concentrated, full-bodied Crozes that has terrific purity, a stacked mid-palate, and ripe, present tannin. It’s a very classic Crozes Hermitage that can be enjoyed today or cellared for 7-8 years.”
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.
