Maison Les Alexandrins Crozes-Hermitage Blanc - 2016

AOC Crozes-Hermitage

The vineyard of Crozes-Hermitage isn’t as old as that of Hermitage. It developed over this century towards the south to the detriment of fruit orchards.


The 2016 Crozes-Hermitage Blanc (100% Marsanne) is a killer little white that should be snatched up by readers. Buttered orchard fruits, toasted hazelnuts, honeycomb and hints of toast all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, ripe, impressively textured beauty that has real heft and density.
