"Bright violet. Lively dark fruit and floral pastille scents are complemented by suggestions of allspice, olive and smoky minerality. Shows very good clarity and depth on the palate, offering energetic blackberry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors that become sweeter with aeration. Finishes with gentle tannic grip and very good persistence, leaving a subtle candied violet note behind."

Product Description:

"Stephane’s entry level Crozes-Hermitage is typically lifted, aromatic, elegantly textured and ready to go upon opening. The parcels that produce this spicy, garrique-scented charmer are distributed among the communes Crozes-Hermitage, Erôme and Gervans, always on a granite bedrock but with small pockets of loess topsoil while the rest are topsoils derived from the granite bedrock. It’s a Northern Rhône Syrah that demonstrates elegance, accessibility and great palate texture, which is partly due to its vinification and aging, but equally its soil composition; the airy, fine-grained loess topsoil brings the lift, and granite bedrock the thrust, with its depth, salty, mineral textures and substantial core." -Importer
