2020 Yann Chave, Crozes-Hermitage 12x75cl

DE92
A very fine and pure expression of syrah here from Yann Chave. Made from 25-year old vines, and without oak. Generous violet floral and white pepper nose; very juicy, sweet/bitter black fruit and savoury liquorice palate; polished, elegant, precisely structured, impeccable finish with lingering pepper spice.

2020 Yann Chave, Crozes-Hermitage, Rouvre 12x75cl

DE93
Yann’s ‘le Rouvre’ cuvée steps things up a gear, with an extra level of depth and intensity. A selection of the oldest parcels of syrah in the south of Crozes, and aged for 12 months in one... and two year-old barrels. Violet florals, blood citrus and white pepper on the nose; rich and powerful on the palate with intense, black cherry and an intriguing interplay of sweet and bitter black olive fruit. Ultra precision and polish on a long, expansive finish.

2020 Melody, Crozes-Hermitage, Premier Regard 12x75cl

Hints of white pepper and spice on the nose lead you to a delightful warm and forward mouthful of berry fruit compote, vanilla and liquorice. Excellent weight and texture with malleable tannins that make it very accessible in its youth, yet built for medium term enjoyment as well.

2020 Domaine Melody, Crozes-Hermitage, Etoile Noire 12x75cl

Spicy, exuberant, full-bodied, but with real underlying freshness. Very well balanced, concentrated, with great finesse of tannin; all elements along with the oak are well integrated and finish with great depth and length.

2020 M. Chapoutier, Crozes-Hermitage, Les Varonniers 6x75cl

DE94
"Graphite, plum and blackberry aromas. Beautifully silky, this has a good sense of fluidity but also remarkable intensity and concentration. Energetic and driven, with deep fruit and sweet tannin,... there's a mineral straightness that helps to temper that ripe fruit and ripe tannin. The alcohol is quite raised but not unbalanced; this is a cut above most Crozes-Hermitages, more serious in style and texture." 94 pts., Matt Walls, www.decanter.com

2020 Paul Jaboulet Aine, Crozes-Hermitage, Domaine de Thalabert 6x75cl

JR16.5
Beautifully expressive, floral with a gorgeous core of violets, followed on the palate by a richly-fruited core complemented by savoury, meaty, umami notes on the finish. Gently grippy with ripe and impressively fine-grained tannins, the structure is perfect for this to peak between 2027 and 2030. (Mr Wheeler Tasting note)
