One of, if not, the best Crozes. Dark and red berry fruit on the brooding nose. Granite and sappy olives. Really expansive and clean. The top cuvee of 3 Crozes at Darnaud from the oldest vines. Layered, elegant nose. Truly elite. Palate is juicy and so balanced with sleek red and black berry and cherry fruits. Succulent. Dense and chewy but super energetic. Awesome concentration and power. Amazing tannins pumping juicy pure fruit to the super mineral and olivey finish. Young and can only improve.
Greatly improved overnight. 9.5 to 9.6. Amazing elegant wine with just unreal granite infused dark fruit and so pure and balanced. This is one of the finest Crozes I’ve ever had. — 19 days ago

Seductive, medium bodied Chardonnay with tropical fruit and a dollop of oak imparting toasted coconut notes. A tasty single vineyard treat at $29.
