This wine shows a deep ruby colour. The nose is an explosion of black fruits: cassis, blackberry and jammy red fruits, then leather and tobacco notes. On the palate, liquorice comes first and shows the young age of the wine, then come the aromas that we found on the nose added to slightly oaky notes, baked toasts and smoky aromas. Concentrated with a nice acidity, this wine has silky and round tannins which show a promising ageing potential. A Crozes Hermitage with a beautiful ageing capacity which is already pleasant now at its lovely fruity stage.
"This juicy red delivers a focused beam of mulled cherry and currant fruit laced with sweet tobacco notes and a hint of iron. Very pure on the finish, with solid length. Drink now through 2011. 280 cases imported."
"Saturated ruby color. Black raspberry and cherry pit aromas are complicated by notes of black pepper, olive and smoky herbs. A floral note comes up air and carries onto the palate, joining sweet red and dark berry flavors and undertones of smoke and minerals. A hint of sweet oak spice lingers on a very long, sappy finish. This could only be syrah."
