Ratings & Reviews



Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Better, the 2011 Crozes Hermitage shows the best of the vintage with it perfumed, pretty bouquet of wild flowers, licorice and lifted plum and currant-styled fruit. Medium-bodied, supple and loaded with fruit, it’s a total charmer to drink over the coming 6-7 years." - Jeb Dunnuck (Dec 2013)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (2010 vintage):

"Vivid ruby. Smoke- and pepper-accented aromas and flavors of bitter cherry and dark berries. Sappy and precise, with good closing grip and lingering spiciness" - Josh Raynolds (Mar/Apr 13)
