E. Guigal Crozes-Hermitage 2017 (91 JD)
“A great example of the vintage, the 2017 Crozes-Hermitage is perfumed and expressive, with sunny notes of ripe red and black fruits, saddle leather, dried herbs, and hints of spiced meat. With medium-bodied richness, ripe tannins, and terrific overall balance, it’s a total charmer.”
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.
