Guigal Crozes Hermitage 2017
Crozes-Hermitage can be considered the gateway to the red and white wines of the Northern Rhône Valley. The reds, which are the majority of production, have wonderful warm flavors of red and black fruit, and typical Syrah pepper, spice and savory notes.

|Marked by scents of cracked pepper and ripe cherries, the 2017 Crozes Hermitage is more concentrated and textured than the 2016. Medium to full-bodied, it finishes velvety, with hints of raspberries and licorice.|
|James Suckling: 91|
|Some good complexity and depth here with a fleshy and ripe, melon, pear and apple core. Some white peaches, too. The palate has layered texture and beautiful, apple and pear focus. Long and even.|
