Crozes-Hermitage Cuvee Alberic Bouvet. Domaine Gilles Robin 2009
This cuvee is elaborated solely with old vines from the major terroirs of the Estate (Rochas, Monico, Terres rouges). The blending is firstly based on Syrah grapes whose early maturity brings feminity and spices to this civilized Syrah wine. This cuvee includes another Syrah style, more rustic, with ripe fruits and elegant tannins, which blends ideally with the first one. Finally, a deeper Syrah style, red fruits gorged, completes ideally Albéric Bouvet which, during its aging, will give the pleasure of a noble Syrah, deep with a unique character. The revelation of the nicest terroirs from Gilles Robin Estate and the blending of every Syrah style are key to this cuvee.
Food Pairings for Crozes-Hermitage Cuvee Alberic Bouvet. Domaine Gilles Robin
This wine shows a deep ruby color. The nose is an explosion of black fruits: cassis, blackberry and jammy red fruits, then leather and tobacco notes. On the palate, licorice comes first and shows the young age of the wine, then come the aromas that we found on the nose added to slightly oaky notes, baked toasts and smoky aromas. Concentrated with a nice acidity, this wine has silky and round tannins which show a promising aging potential. A Crozes Hermitage with a beautiful aging capacity which is already pleasant now at its lovely fruity stage.
