A perennial favorite with consistent cool-climate character and complexity that always makes it seem like a steal. 2015 is no exception.

so good. floral, concentrated fruit, rustic but also beautiful. And a long, balanced finish to boot. this is a winner.

Such a great Syrah to have slightly chilled on a summer evening. Glad I had a magnum.

Dense black fruit on the nose, bloody, olive, more lifted and mineral than other Crozes. Present but not intrusive tannin. Tart acidity.

Black plum, dark sour cherries, blackberries, slight tarry character with cooked strawberries pulling up the rear. Black licorice anise, dark cocoa powder, old black moist earth, leather, cigar ash, grilled meats, nice acidity and decent finish.

Millésime 2015!! Magnifique! Matière mur, corps gourmand et élancé. Éclat aromatique passant par les fruits noirs, les épices douces, la liqueur de fruit. J'ai adoré.

2014-a velvety, luscious benevolence. Nice wine to be sharing with great friends and family!

I found this bottle to be pretty one-dimensional; absolutely loaded with black pepper and while a fairly serviceable food wine, not near as long on delivery as other C-H from other producers for similar money
