    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Crozes-Hermitage "Le Clos" cuvée has a deep ruby red color, with garnet tinges. The nose shows aromas of stewed black fruit (cassis and blackberries). As it opens up, it reveals hints of leather and game. The palate is perfectly balanced, with a combination of suave delicacy and considerable volume. The finish is lifted by flavors of very ripe black cherries. This wine pairs well with river game, mixed grills and marinated beef or chicken.

    Critical Acclaim:

    There is no problem understanding the 2009 Crozes-Hermitage Le Clos. Aged completely in small French oak barrels, it boasts a striking minerality, a wonderfully dense ruby/purple color and sweet notes of creme de cassis, black raspberries, licorice, crushed rocks and spring flowers. Full-bodied and dense, with some tannins still to shed, it will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring and is capable of lasting two decades.

    The Wine Advocate

    Vivid ruby. Intense cherry, redcurrant and licorice aromas are lifted by an alluring potpourri element. A scented, mineral-driven midweight that offers assertive, attractively sweet flavors of red and dark berries and candied flowers. Finishes sweet and very long, with impressive nuance to its floral and spice elements. This vineyard is on granite, in the northern Chassis sector of the appellation.
