Deep Crimson but bright and cheery. Spicy nose of nutmeg, touch of menthol. Bouncing with acidity, perfectly ripe fruit and great line and length. Not an awesome wine but clean and bright and wonderfully made. For this I have to give it a gold.

From the second I opened this it showed reductive signs of game and asphalt. As it opened up I began getting less menthol/eucalyptus and more pepper. This wine lasted two more days as I kept trying it; I cannot wait to find this producer again and serve it with a proper pairing.

Lots of garrigue with a hint of pepper on the nose. Dark, black fruits on the palate with lots of herbs.

Acidic and dry. Mean totally hold up to meaty dishes but also drinkable on its own.

Pretty friggin awesome for the price. Great northern Rhone qualities; iron, pepper, meat juice, black olive. Nice acid too. Intake this over a new world Syrah any day

Had some neat characteristics, but they blew off too fast. Interestingly, there was a nice saltiness and stoney iron note throughout. A nice wine, but not a killer.

First 2012 Northern Rhone I have looked at so far. Reductive on the nose but began to blow off immediately. Smoky red fruit bouquet. Lovely balance. Red currant, blueberry. Precise super fine tannin. 12.5% alcohol and has nice length. 91 points.

Typical Crozes. Very elegant, refined and subtle. Red fruits: Cherry and raspberries. Finish is short but soft - easy drinking. Lacks X-Factor. 90 points.
