2016 🔥. Aromas developed nicely—roasted meat, soy, violets. Palate is high-toned and savory. Beautiful work. — 3 days ago

Nice organic Croze, a little closed at first, but develops well during tasting. Floral notes and fruity first, mint-minhole herb touch in a second step, something between the mineral and the notes liquorice in the distance. Final a little frank but very correct overall. 3.7

Croze bio sympa, un peu fermé de prime abord, mais se développe bien en cours de dégustation. Notes florales et fruités d’abord, touche herbacée mentholé es dans un second temps, quelque chose entre le minéral et les notes reglissées dans le loin. Finale un peu franche mais très correct dans l’ensemble. 3,7

This wine is just Fucking beautiful.

The style here is so elegant. I love these wines. I could really drink this once a week. So much the opposite of heavy.

Nose is perfume. Tropical fruit flowers. Not the fruit itself.

Palate is hints of tropical fruit. Mineral. Sleek in a good way. Gorgeous texture. So atypical for the rhone. If more wineries made wine like this I’d drink them as much as I do burgundy.

I think when you add the F-word, the wine is at least a 94.
Looking forward to drinking her wines at some point, we bought '17.

These are not wines for people who want to be knocked over by fruit. Very atypical for the region.

They are also crazy cheap for some reason.

Nicely balanced. Luscious. Not the rustic side of Crozes … more like it was wearing a suit rather than the traditional overalls. — a month ago

Mostly scarlet in color, translucent and regal. Deep nose. Notes of black cherry, blueberries, dried cranberries, some cool slate stone and some pepper. Rich and long in the mouth. Tannins fully resolved and integrated. Really nice for the vintage. In a great drinking window. — 5 days ago

I adore this wine. Huge granitic nose. Almost cassis. Blackberry. Pulverized blueberry. White pepper. Leather. Amazing aromas. Black pepper ground up so so fine. Glorious spice and herbs. Just terrific. Juicy and concentrated. So pure and sappy. Enormous freshness and density and just so so fine. Beautiful balance and finishes with granite. Loads of blackberry, blueberry on the palate. Medium bodied and so so long. Still needs 5 years. Needs more density to be a 9.5 but a wonderful wine. — a month ago

Dark red stone fruits and leather. Smooth with a long finish. Suspect letting lay up another five years would be good but just couldn’t wait! — 16 days ago
