    Winemaker's Notes:

    The name comes from one of the many parcels which compose this wine, upon which can be found the three distinguishing oak trees which stand out and identify the vineyard. Although the character of each vintages changes, the evidence of a sensitive and deft winemaker is always present. Consistent are the trademark aromas of black fruits, tar, olive tapenade, violets and the waft of smoke one has come to expect. Soft, stylish and seductive as always.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A major sleeper of the vintage, this opaque purple-colored 2009 Crozes-Hermitage reveals notes of melted road tar, black truffles, graphite, blackberries, cassis, charcoal and roasted herbs. This full-bodied, stunning effort should drink nicely for 10-15 years. Rating: 91-93

    The Wine Advocate

    A modern style, with dark, alluring espresso and bittersweet cocoa flavors leading the way, followed by muscular black currant paste, crushed fig and plum sauce notes. The long, broad, dark finish has lots of latent drive. There's plenty of stuffing here, and this should open with a touch of cellaring. Best yet from this emerging producer. Drink now through 2015. 2,000 cases made.
