Loaded with cracked pepper aromas and flavors, defined by a balanced structure and boasting accents of ripe cherry and raspberry, plus smoky licorice. Drink now through 2026.—T.F

The value-priced 2015 Crozes Hermitage is another smoking good wine from this négociant. Blackberries, plums, licorice, crushed rocks and a hint of pepper all emerge from this beauty, which hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, sweet tannin and a great finish. Drink it on release and over the following 5-6 years.

Score: 90 | December 9, 2016 | Wine & Spirits

Powerfully extracted, this needs long exposure to air before the hard edges relent, moving from mineral oil, heat and black tannins to a smoother, softer feel. The texture becomes round and lush, while the mineral notes in the tannins keep it to an elegant line.
