Very deep garnet colour with black, tan and purple tints. The nose opens early on a mineral touch and offers a delicious fruit expression, accompanied by floral and spicy notes: warm sand, violet, fruit and alcohol confit, four spices. The mouth is warm and round and has a soft texture with silky tannins. Vegan.
Wine Advocate Tasting Note
Entrefaux’s 2017 Crozes Hermitage smells like sun-warmed stones and herb-laced black olives. It’s medium to full-bodied, with a velvety mouthfeel and long finish that picks up notes that resemble cola and dried spices. It should drink well for 4-5 years. 90 Points, Joe Czerwinski, December 2018
Can be enjoyed throughout a meal. Great with a beef stew, cassoulet, morrocan tagine and coq au vin.
