Critic Notes

The most impressive of the lineup, the 2011 Crozes Hermitage Clos des Grives gives up more bacon fat, wood spice, pepper and layered blackberry fruit. Also medium-bodied and showing the vintage nicely, with solid freshness, plenty of fruit and excellent length, it is a bigger, richer version of the straight Crozes-Hermitage, yet should have a similar aging trajectory. Drink it over the coming 6-7 years. Wine Advocate.December, 2013
