2017 Crozes Hermitage Rouvre
Domaine Yann Chave
Rødvin - Syrah - 75 cl - 13,50 %
94 point, JebDunnuck.com: "It’s the finest vintage to date for this cuvée and has a pure yet concentrated and structured style to go with classy notes of black raspberries, peppery herbs, dried flowers, and hints of new leather as well some evident minerality. With medium to full-bodied richness, it’s beautiful on the palate and has a seamless, beautifully balanced style that’s going to evolve nicely for 10-15 years."
92 point, Vinous.com: "Lively cherry and blueberry scents are complemented by suggestions of baking spices, violet and olive paste. Smooth, focused and sweet, offering spice-laced black and blue fruit and floral pastille flavors that tighten up slightly on the back half. A zesty mineral note appears on the clinging finish, which is framed by supple, even tannins."
92 point, Decanter: "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. It's pretty massive and will age well."
