Yves Cuilleron ‘Lieu-Dit Les Chassis’ Crozes-Hermitage 2015

Syrah from France - Rhone
Review Date : 10-Nov-2017
Dark, deep, saturated black-red colour, with youthful purple hues. The nose is tightly concentrated with intense blackberry fruit with dark rasp[berry, lifted violet florals, and minerals. Black pepper garrigue herb, and savoury notes provide complexity. Elegant in presentation on palate, this is still tightly bound, but the wine has rich and powerfully driven flavours of blackberries, raspberries and an array of black fruits with dark, savoury herb nuances, forming a refined, firm heart. Lovely fresh acidity enhances the vitality. Fine-grained tannins and excellent length. A superb and serious Crozes-Hermitage to keep a decade plus. 13.0% alc. Aged in 30% new oak. 19.0/20 Nov 2017 RRP$ 75.00
