    Winemaker's Notes:

    The color is deep, with a garnet hue deepened by purple tinges. The nose shows seductive whiffs of crushed black fruit-dark cherries, blackberries and blackcurrants-that evolve in the glass to reveal slightly woody and smoky notes, together with a hint of coffee. Spices, and especially grey pepper, add lift and harmony to this already rich aromatic palette. The wine is fresh and lively in the mouth, with persistant flavors and good length. It is solidly built around a good tannic structure, true to its origins. The texture is silky and the balance fine. It pairs well with red meat, feathered game and lamb in pastry.

    Critical Acclaim:

    There is a lot of good stuff in the 2010, but the real stunner is the 2009 Crozes-Hermitage Domaine des Grands Chemins. Revealing abundant notes of tar, cassis, black raspberries, tapenade and earth in its rich, full-bodied, stunning personality, it should drink well for 10-15 years.

    The Wine Advocate

    Dark ruby. Raspberry and cherry on the bright, floral-accented nose. Juicy and precise, offering sweet red fruit flavors that pick up weight and smokiness with air. A touch of candied licorice comes up on the finish, which shows good energy and length.
