Yann Chave Crozes Hermitage Classique 2017
Colour: deep purple colour with a purple hue.
Nose: an expressive nose marked by black fruit, such as blackcurrant or cassis. A hint of mint may be observed when the wine is left to breathe.
Palate: the palate is rich and generous. Aromas of black fruit develop with intensity. Velvety tannins give this wine delicious fullness, with a hint of freshness on the finish.
"A consistently strong organic estate, the rest of Yann's range is also worth looking at, from his white Crozes to his red Hermitage. This is a meaty, savoury expression of Crozes, with massy, dense, savoury tannins and piercing acidity. It has remarkable underlying freshness and considerable structure."Rated 92 Points by Decanter
