E. Guigal Crozes-Hermitage 2018 (92 WA) (90-92)
“Tasted against the 2016 and 2017, Guigal’s 2018 Crozes Hermitage reveals another level of ripeness and plushness. It’s full-bodied, maybe even a little jammy (not a problem at this youthful stage of its evolution), without being heavy or overdone.”
Crozes-Hermitage can be considered the gateway to the red and white wines of the Northern Rhône Valley. The reds, which are the majority of production, have wonderful warm flavors of red and black fruit, and typical Syrah pepper, spice and savory notes.
