Wine Enthusiast published a story focusing on the extraordinary vintages from 2015 – 2017 across the Rhone Valley. Writer Anna Lee C. Iijima outlines the the differences between the vintages, and what consumers can expect to experience from both northern and the southern Rhone offerings with each year. The Guigal 2015 Crozes-Hermitage (91 Pts) is among the standout wines she encourages readers to invest in to cellar and drink for years to come, adding that “The nose is subtle on this elegant Syrah but the palate opens gradually to introduce layer upon layer of silky, sun-kissed blackberry and plum flavors.” You can read the full story here
Crozes-Hermitage can be considered the gateway to the red and white wines of the Northern Rhône Valley. The reds, which are the majority of production, have wonderful warm flavors of red and black fruit, and typical Syrah pepper, spice and savory notes.
