Domaine Gilles Robin Crozes Hermitage Cuvee Alberic Bouvet 2012

£19.99

 

"Four generations of Ronins have lived at this estate and Gilles took over 17 years ago, immediately reducing yields, spurning fertilisers and building a gravity-fed winery. Such dedication has paid off, with Domaine Robin now making some of its best syrahs yet from 40 year old vines. This beautiful Alberic Bouvet blend is a mix of early and later maturing plots, creating a sizzling syrah with some gorgeous, bold, violet, blackberry and bramble fruit, plus a peppery, perfumed finish. Surprisingly good now, or put it away until 2018 for rich, spicy, gamely flavours to emerge." Jane MacQuitty, The Times, March 2013.

TASTING NOTE

Vibrant aromas of plum with great texture and balance between front-mid-end palate. Fresh but rich with great sustain of flavour on the finish.

A food friendly wine, enjoy with most meats and cheeses.

100% Syrah
