Nicolas Perrin Maison Alexandrins Crozes Hermitage Rouge 2018
Sharing some of the granite slopes of Hermitage and offering some of the stony alluvial terraces that foster deep ripening Syrah, Crozes Hermitage southerly slopes yield serious Syrah all the more concentrated by the Mistral breezes that blow as if aware that their winds were focusing the bright plum fruit, violets, pepper, and subtle at times overt meaty bacon fat characteristics that set the Northern Rhone apart. Seldom as flexed as Hermitage, Crozes Hermitage is often easier in its younger years despite its ability to cellar a while. Once an initiate’s territory known among the cognoscenti for diamonds in the rough, the appellation is ever on the rise and it is now easy to find great value from this place often overshadowed by the Hermitage hill.
Winged beasties with dark meat like duck, goose, squab, and griffins. Hooved game. Roasted meats.
