The Wine Advocate

"Completely whole cluster as always, the 2016 Crozes Hermitage comes across as slightly ashy and vegetal, yet it has enough green olive, cola and raspberry notes to possess a sense of balance. It's medium to full-bodied, with a silky mouthfeel and a long finish.

This year, both of Alain's sons—Antoine and Maxime—were on hand when I visited the estate. As always, the red wines here are fermented with their stems. "It's the style of the winery," said Antoine. "And, it's easier. We're not always asking ourselves, 'Is it 20%, 40%?' It's always 100%." Not much changes here, but the brothers do say the wines are spending a little longer in vat both before and after spending a year in barrel. The 2017 reds will be bottled in March 2019. I tasted a couple of barrels, but as the selection for La Guiraude hadn't been made yet, I haven't reviewed the wines formally. Overall, they look bigger, richer and velvetier in texture than the more classic 2016s. "It's easy to make Guiraude," said Antoine. "It's easy to pick the best barrels. The challenge is to maintain the quality of the Crozes Hermitage."

"Deep vivid ruby. Expressive dark berry preserve, baking spice, potpourri and smoky mineral aromas display good clarity and take on an olive nuance with air. Sappy, concentrated blackberry, bitter cherry and olive paste flavors show very good focus, and a hint of candied violet emerges on the back half. Sweet and chewy in texture, finishing with energetic cut, spice-driven persistence and building tannins that add firming grip."
