Maison Nicolas Perrin Crozes-Hermitage Blanc - 2011

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.


Une pure marsanne fraîche, franche de goût, précise, entre crayeux et crémeux. Longueur moyenne, prêt à boire jeune.

Ripe but defined, with pear skin and blanched almond notes framing the core of melon, peach and apricot flavors. A nice unctuous edge marks the finish.

Light gold. Ripe tangerine and poached pear aromas are complicated by smoky minerals and gingery spices. Rich and weighty but energetic as well, offering bitter citrus pith and orchard fruit flavors, a hint of anise and a chewy texture. A floral note builds on the spicy, very persistent finish, which is firmed by a dusty mineral quality.
