Crozes Hermitage, Northern Rhône

La Guiraude Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2020

Very nice crozes. Could use a bit more acid on the finish, but otherwise thoroughly enjoyable. Deep and dark with a decent amount of olive. Very savory. Perfect pairing with duck for two with a rich duck demi glacé at Le coucou for a pre Valentine’s Day dinner. — 15 days ago

White Rhone may not have all the rave, but they have the special velouté texture — 6 days ago

... And the 2009 next to the 2015. Thank you Peter for opening this for comparison. The 2015 was much hotter vintage with charred coal characteristics on the nose. This 2009 is very nice. Delicate, granite like, some sweetness. — a month ago
