Community Tasting Notes (6) Avg Score: 91.8 points

  • Very seductive nose of floral, black and red currants, peppers, tobacco, gamey and smokiness. Wine opens up after 3 hours of decant. Very lifted acidity. There are spiciness, peppers, red currants, some meatiness, earthy and leathery notes on the palate. Gentle and smooth tannins, sensual and sort of elegant. It finishes with some notes of minerality lingering.

  • Un nez boisé à l'ouverture, avec de la viande fumée, des cerises.
    Belle tension minérale, c'est frais et mûr, excellent, mais il a besoin d'aération pour que le fruit prenne le dessus sur l'élevage. 90-91 pts

  • Very good. Depp, purple, vanillo, spicy. It will improve with time. Potantial 94

  • Un nez expressif de jambon fumé, cerise plutôt bonbon, vanille, avec des violettes et du poivre. Charmeur, mais moins suave et subtil que mon souvenir du Saint-Joseph.

    En bouche, le vin est ouvert et bien savoureux, un peu racoleur, avec une belle concentration, de la fraicheur, un fruit pur. C'est un très bon Croze, forcément plus puissant, mais sans la finesse et la précision du St-Joseph. J'aime ce vin, mais je suis étonné de la note ronflante donnée par Jeb Dunnuck du W.A. 90+ pts

  • Bugger, I drank this to fast. After 3 hours the nose really opens up, with black currant, meat, pepper, wet stone - and I am just sitting here trying to inhale the last drops. Taste is just wonderful, with smooth tannins and balanced acidity. This is a great bottle of wine, but hide it for a few years before drinking.
