    April 10, 2019 - This was significantly darker in profile in comparison to other Crozes-Hermitage wines I’ve had. Violets, underripe blackberry and charcoal aromatics. There was a streak of iron down the middle of the palate to go with more blackberry, spiced rhubarb and cedar. Chewy tannins. No problem holding for a few more years.

    March 28, 2019 - I love the purity of this Syrah. Very typical and expressive. Power, acidity.. BAM! a great wine.

    October 12, 2018 - A Crozes-Hermitage that approaches a real Hermitage in appearance (and price). Very dark in the glass, limited nose, on the palate good and pure fruit, a strong acid backbone and a long, relatively dry and tannic finish. Very well made and very nice to drink. Maybe time will further improve this wine - the word „crozes“ made me uncertain to wait. As of today the bit lacking complexity and dryness of the finish prevent a higher score than 91p.

    September 21, 2018 - 2nd bottle of 5, first was flawed. Nice nose of blackberry and blueberry with hints of clove and eucalyptus. Taste is very good with the same blackberry and blueberry as in the nose, its round with nice rounded tannins in the finish. Long aftertaste with hint of coconut and leather. Very good.
