Tasting Note:

More intense, tight-wound and therefore a little stricter than the regular Crozes. The firm tannins help add a sense of freshness here. Muscled but with some polish too. The fruit is crystalline and clear – flavours of black cherry, salt and cracked pepper with a background earthiness giving this dimension. Serious Crozes. A third of the blend was fermented with whole bunches. A cellar blend of the best barrels that more often than not comes from a selection of old vines on the estate planted by Florent's grandfather, Gaby. Aged in oak demi muid barrels.
