A perfect expression of this terroir. The nose shows a delicate but complex bouquet of aromas: pretty notes of black fruit (blackcurrant, blackberries), smoked and grilled notes and sweet spices. In the mouth, the attack is full of freshness, dense, with fine tannins and beautiful aromas with subtle notes of ageing and red and black fruit.

Huon Hooke

Deep red colour with a good tint of purple, the bouquet very spicy with a twist of pepper and decided cool-grown properties. The palate is medium-bodied and quite elegantly-structured, with some firmness from tannins that run the full length of the palate, accompanied by a hint of graphite. Pleasingly long finish. A very smart wine that's typical of the northern Rhône.

From two sites located in Crozes, one near the Pont l’Isère and the other near Beaumont Monteux, the 2016 Crozes Hermitage spent 12-18 months in a mix of used barrels. It offers terrific blackberry and cherry fruits intermixed with lots of peppery herbs, spice, and earthy minerality. Deep, layered, and pure on the palate, with medium-bodied richness and polished tannins, it’s a rocking wine from this estate.

A fresh, mineral-driven style, with sanguine and iron notes running from start to finish while cherry, red currant and raspberry fruit keeps pace. Mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2022.
