Product Description

The 2016 was fermented in concrete vats and then racked into one, two and three year old Burgundy barrels purchased from some of the top estates in Burgundy. There is also a tiny component (less than 10%) of new barrels that are purchased from the Atelier Centre France, whose bespoke steam-bent barrels are now used at Guiberteau, Didier Dagueneau and François Chidaine. The wine spends 11 months in barrel and is then brought together for three months in large fût tronconique. It was bottled unfiltered. As the note below says, this is delicious. Loads of pulpy black cherry and crushed black olive (great palates taste alike?). Fruit as well as spicy, cedary notes flood the palate while the finish is long, perfumed and wonderfully refreshing with juicy acidity and a pinch of fine tannins. This is seriously good which is another reason we are offering to historical buyers first - we don't want followers of this label to miss out!

"Tasted from tank, the 2016 Crozes Hermitage delivers scents of road tar, black olives and blackberries. The tannins are silky, the acids fresh, the overall impact delicious. This medium to full-bodied wine should be ready to drink on release and drink well for 6-7 years." 91-93 points, Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate
