Guigal Crozes Hermitage Rouge 2016
Sustainable | From the varied limestone, clay and silt and sandy gravel of the steep slopes among the villages of Gervans, Mercurol, Larnage of Crozes-Hermitage, this dark 100% Syrah proves a handsome marvel of a Crozes-Hermitage worthy of 18 months in oak barrels yielding a meaty red of fragrant black pepper, sandalwood and roses that convey themselves on the palate in a high toned spice box, a texture one wishes to keep on one’s tongue and a balanced equipoise that haunts the finish –a Crozes-Hermitage worthy of the high table, fine cuts, and even the patience of a cool cellar –though it is not necessary in order to enjoy it. This is like an aspiring Hermitage –it’s complete!
Wine review by Nicholas Livingston, July 9th, 2014 (Flower)
Winged beasties with dark meat like duck, goose, squab, and griffins. Hooved game. Roasted meats.
