    Winemaker's Notes:

    Crozes-Hermitage is the largest of the appellations of the Northern Rhône, comprising just over 2500 acres planted to Syrah for red wine and Marsanne and Roussanne for white. The vineyards are largely on the plain, producing reasonably priced and straightforward wines, but there are also some superb hillside vineyards which provide concentrated, long-lived wines. In general, the red wines have prototypical Syrah flavors, spicy and persistent, with vigor and intensity of flavor in an appealingly rustic style.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The exceptional 2009 Crozes-Hermitage is one of the top wines of the vintage. A complex bouquet of black olives, licorice, ground beef, spring flowers and red and black currants soars from the glass of this 100% Syrah that is aged in 3-year-old barrels as well as larger foudres. With remarkable density, this evolved, approachable, delicious, full-bodied Crozes should drink well for a decade.

    This is entirely savory, all toasted almond, mineral and salt, an austere Crozes that stands out for its steadfast flavor and firmness. Decant it for veal stew with mushrooms. Best Buy.

    Very disappointing. Cork and nose are good, but taste and drinking experience are flat, no fruit or pepper, in short, no life to the wine. I'm a big fan of this wine, over many years. Imagine my chagrin and sorrow, as well as wasting good money on an inferior wine.
