Tasting Notes

One of the greatest wines made in the appellation, the opaque purple-colored, full-bodied 2010 Crozes-Hermitage Les Varonnieres exhibits notes of truffles, blackberries, asphalt, barbecue smoke, pen ink and steak tartare in addition to abundant minerality. It is a worthy competitor to the brilliant 2009. Drink it over the next 20-25 years. Drink 2012-2037

One of the finest wines of the appellation is the 2010 Crozes-Hermitage Les Varonnieres. Oodles of tapenade, black truffle, asphalt, blackberry and subtle barbecue smoke are all present in this opaque purple wine, which has great fruit, a full-bodied mouthfeel and a huge finish. Drink it over the next 20-30 years.
