Herkunft Frankreich, Rhône
Merkmale VINOTTI Empfehlung P 90 | 90 – 92
Degustation VINOTTI 91: Herrliche dunkle Früchte, schwarze Kirschen, moderate schmelzige Tanine und schönem Abgang. Die 3er Serie Crozes-Hermitage wird packender, vielschichiger und lagerfähiger von Wein zu Wein (Signature, La Chasseliere, Terre d’Arc).
Degustation Parker: P90 – A sleek, ready-to-drink Crozes, the 2020 Crozes Hermitage Signature combines hints of cherries and blackberries with peppery spice and hints of dusty earth. It’s medium to full-bodied, smooth and supple on the palate, with a lingering finish.
Harvest had been underway for a few days when I visited this family-owned domaine just south of Tain l”Hermitage, so the Chevrol family (three sisters and a brother) understandably delegated my tasting to affable export manager Laurent Gomez. “Last year, we finished harvest on September 18,” he said, adding, “This year, we started picking on the 18th.” Farming 50 hectares mainly in Crozes-Hermitage, but with small parcels in Cornas, Hermitage and Saint-Joseph, the estate is transitioning to organic viticulture and has added several biodiversity corridors among the vineyards
