Guigal Crozes Hermitage 2019
Crozes-Hermitage can be considered the gateway to the red and white wines of the Northern Rhône Valley.

|The only one of the 2019 reds to have been bottled at the time of my visit, the 2019 Crozes Hermitage is a super effort, and it should represent a terrific value (the 2018 sells for about $30). Hints of violets accent blueberries and cassis on the nose in this full-bodied, concentrated offering. Rich, velvety and a bit tannic, it's an impressive négoce bottling.
