Maison Nicolas Perrin Crozes-Hermitage - 2013

AOC Crozes-Hermitage



My favorite of the lineup, the 2013 Crozes Hermitage should be an outstanding wine. Cassis, crushed rocks, spice, black raspberry and subtle underbrush all emerge from this full-bodied, seriously endowed 2013. Possessing notable purity, solid freshness and a great finish, it too will have upward of a decade of longevity. This collaboration between the Perrin Family (of Château Beaucastel) and Nicolas Jaboulet continues to churn out high-quality wines.

Refined and silky in feel despite the heft of the plum, blackberry and black cherry fruit core, featuring a racy iron note and long echoes of white pepper and tobacco on the finish.

Blue Fruit with some woodsmoke. The palate bears attractive, scented red fruits with lissom tannins. Well presented, harmonious and enjoyable.
