Wine AdvocateAs we tasted the 2015 Crozes Hermitage, Philippe Guigal said, "It's rare we get full phenolic ripeness in Crozes. We got that in 2015." The wine's silky tannins certainly support his claim. It's medium to full-bodied, with raspberry, cherry and black olive aromas and flavors that scream of the variety, and it has a long finish. It's an outstanding value and a wine that may be happily consumed anytime from now through 2025.

Wine SpectatorDirect, with a beam of bitter cherry, plum and singed anise notes. Light black tea and iron accents underscore the finish.
