Tasting Notes

The 2010 Crozes-Hermitage Domaine de Thalabert, which I raved about last year, is slightly better than their brilliant 2009. It boasts a dense purple color along with a beautiful perfume of camphor, licorice, forest floor, black currants and Christmas fruitcake. With tremendous intensity, full body and supple tannins, it should drink well for 10-15 years, perhaps longer where well-stored. This cuvee is always one of the best buys in the Northern Rhone.

Inky ruby. Intense blackberry and anise aromas are complemented by notes of candied flowers and smoky minerals. Silky and seamless on the palate, offering sweet dark berry and violet pastille flavors and a hint of cracked pepper. Closes energetic and very long, with slow-building tannins adding grip.

NB vintage. 40 ha! Very glamorous deep crimson. Black-pepper notes on the nose and then some relaxed fruit on the palate at last! Racy and broad - this wine has come on very nicely. Long and punchy. Appetising. Drink 2014 to 2020.
