Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"Sourced from the finest hillside vineyards in Larnage, Erôme and Gervans, our Crozes-Hermitage often has more in common with a Hermitage than with a Crozes from the plains. As a reminder, hillside vineyards account for just 20% of the appellation. As Syrah expresses itself differently depending on the soils it is grown on, the ‘marker’ of a Crozes-Hermitage is its fruit intensity, which invariably gives it a pleasurable dimension and drinkability. It is therefore essential to have some good bottles of Crozes-Hermitage in your cellar if you tend to be an instant pleasure-seeker. This is even more true of the 2014, which offers imbibers an immediate connection with its origins. Actually, this is one of the advantages of a ‘gentler’ vintage: sense of place is revealed earlier on in the wine’s evolution, unlike great vintages which need time to express their intrinsic character.
This 2014 Crozes fully encapsulates the finesse of the hillsides of Gervans and its beautiful granite soils. Wines from this terroir are never heavy but always show depth and length. They have pedigree. Smoked bacon, blueberry, white pepper and incense. Bottled without filtering.​"
92/100 Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate (2014 Vintage)
"Touches of smoke, black tea and singed mesquite give this a perfumed feel, while the core of cherry and plum fruit stays tightly coiled around an iron note. Should unwind well, as the acidity ripples underneath. More minerally than most Crozes. Best from 2018 through 2024. 650 cases made."
91-93 Points Vinous (2014 Vintage)
"Bright violet. Lively, mineral-laced dark berry aromas are complicated by hints of floral oils and peppery spices. Silky and seamless on the palate, offering gently sweet black raspberry and violet pastille flavours that become deeper and fleshier with air. Sappy and graceful in character, closing with strong thrust and silky tannins.”
