2014 vintage. Exemplary wine making here in this challenging vintage (weather conditions and a weird fruit fly). This wine avoids the trap of over-extraction, and displays a more restrained fresh mineral character. Don't expect big jammy fruit. Drinking beautifully now, but will last for a few more years. Medium-bodied, elegant and balanced, with nice length. Give it a few hours in the glass and it will shine.

Just bottled, so closed, but promises to be big and round.

Deep garnet dress. Ample, leather animal, spicy, black fruits. Overqualified Crozes wish can play the comparison with a Cornas or some big Saint-Joseph wines. Gourmet wine. 2014 is balanced at will and will withstand several more years of aging.

Robe Grenat profond. Amples, animal cuir, épicé, fruits noirs. Crozes sur-qualifié pouvant jouer la comparaison avec un Cornas voir une Cote-Rotie. Vin gastronomique. 2014 est équilibré à souhait et supportera encore plusieurs années de garde.

Precis vad man förväntar sig av crozes-hermitage. Bra balans, fin syra.
