Maison Nicolas Perrin Crozes-Hermitage - 2014

AOC Crozes-Hermitage



Smooth, minerally and floral; lush, long and balanced.

One of the best white wines I have tasted this year, redolent of autumn fruit with a distinct minerality on the nish, this is beautifully structured and so rivals the finest Rhône blends from Hermitage or, farther south, Châteauneuf. It’s not cheap, but should age well for a good five or more years, become nuttier with time in bottle.

Ce négoce haute couture crée un vin à I'identité septentrionale qui opte pour la fraîcheur de la syrah plus que pour sa volupté. Le bouquet évoque la cerise avec une trame fluide I'acidité apporte de la légèreté pour un accord tendre avec un tartare.

A creamy, rounded feel lets avors of melon, peach and yellow apple glide along easily, picking up light heather and macadamia nut hints along the way and ending with a attering nish. Drink now through 2018
