Dark and deep color. Red fruits, cherry and strawberry with delicate oak aromas. A structured tannic wine. Aromas of blackcurrant buds and vanilla. Remarkable freshness with notable and refined tannins to due long oak ageing. Pair with red meat, game and cheese.
A fresh, pure style, with light red currant, blood orange, white pepper and violet notes allied to a lithe frame, picking up a flicker of savory on the finish. Drink now through 2021. 11,250 cases imported.
Guigal's 2016 Crozes Hermitage is bacony and peppery on the nose, with cherry fruit on the medium-bodied palate. It's not that rich or concentrated but easy-drinking and reasonably complex. It should be consumed over the next 3-4 years.
