Surprised! Complexity from a fine-boned and lower alcohol (12%) Syrah from Northern Rhone. A long awaited pleasure for me! Complexity, with night 1 giving a sense of sweeter spices, which changed for me on night 2 to smell of dusty darker, more savoury spices and cherry fruits. The palate on both nights was consistent, with refined, elegant dark cherry fruits encased in the finest chalky tannins. Still structure to evolve. So fine! - Michael L

1990-92 Syrah from a total of 1 hectare on La Bouvate et Les Rennes at Larnage, northern sector, 50% destemmed, 2 week vinification, cap punched, vat emptying/refilling, aged 4-10 year oak casks 12-13 months, then 3-6 months vat, unfined, unfiltered, 3 bottlings – March/April, May, end of June/July, 3,500bts JLL 'The 2016 Crozes Hermitage was entirely destemmed. This medium-bodied effort shows wonderful purity to its cherry flavors and a supple, appealing mouthfeel. Drink: 2018-2024' (Dec17) 87-89/100 - Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate
