Expert Reviews

On the back of the famous Hermitage hill sits the smaller appellation of Crozes-Hermitage that is warm vintages can make wines almost as good as its more fancied neighbour. This is a lovely release of ripe syrah, showing tell-tale white pepper notes, all lavishly handled with plenty of oak. An excellent Thalabert.Rating 93 - Angus Hughson, The Imported Wine Handbook(AUG/2008)
