This is one of the top Crozes of the vintage. Stunning granite infused nose. Huge terroir expression. This is old vines and in a top sector of Crozes Hermitage. Black olive. Black berry. Dark, deep, lurid nose. So feral and expressive. Flowers and mint. Just an insane nose. Incredible elegance and ripeness with a firm crunchy granite footprint. Sappy and juicy with incredibly density and sweetness. So pure. Layered. Sweet velvety tannins. Remarkable wine. — 11 days ago

Another monthly WTF Group meet up. Northern Rhône vs Southern Rhône, blind as usual.

This threw a ton of sediment. Didn’t get a ton of bloody meat or olive on this, but it was too dark to be a Southern Rhône.

Petite Ruche Crozes-Hermitage Rouge Syrah 2015

16.5/20 (89/100) Довольно интенсивный и свежий аромат черники, ежевики, сливы и тимьяна. Довольно танинное с высокой кислотностью. Несладкие чёрные ягоды во вкусе. Очень хорошо. (12.04.17) #DVR2017 — 8 days ago

Solid value for Northern Rhône Syrah with great typicity. A few rough edges due to youth so throw it in a decanter for a while, but already showing nice depth and complexity for the price point. Ripe and savory with a smoky, gamy funk.

- Color: medium/medium + concentration, ruby-violet hue
- Nose: fresh-picked and still-dirty ripe blackberry and raspberry, black plum, bacon fat, fresh violets, granite, and a slight bit of cracked black pepper, plus a touch of brett and VA but in a pleasant proportion that adds complexity rather than becoming a fault.
- Palate: ripe blackberry and raspberry, olive brine, granite, fresh violet, black pepper, and a bit of licorice root.
- Acid: medium/medium (+)
- RS: dry
- Tannin: fine grained, medium (+) intensity
- Alcohol: medium (+)/high, shows slightly but not distractingly hot
- Body: medium/medium (+), softly textured

I really enjoyed this. Significantly more iron dominant notes on the nose with a very dark palate. More cassis and smoke than rhubarb.

Honeydew melon, kiwi, quince, gardenias, jasmine, creme fraiche, honeysuckle, vanilla. Rounded acidity, satin-silky mineral rich texture, medium-full bodied, long floral-slight honeyed stonefruit finish. Delicate, yet rich. Oak is well integrated on palate and aromatics without overpowering either. — 11 days ago

BM Terroirs d' Exception Crozes Hermitage Syrah 2015

17/20 (92/100) Вино с элегантным ароматом черники, вишневого варенья и легкой травянистой нотой. Довольно высокие кислотность и танинность, при этом танины гладкие по текстуре. Вкус ягодный с тоном песочного печенья. Очень хорошо! (12.04.17) #DVR2017 — 9 days ago
