Crozes Hermitage Equinoxe 2008
Maxime's junior cuvée, presumably bottled somewhere around the<br/>Spring Equinox, its profile informed by a degree of carbonic maceration; a<br/>profile which is both lively and agile, with strawberry and blackberry fruit<br/>underpinned by notes of tapenade and spice. The 2008 is very forward and<br/>approachable, versatile and food-friendly! <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)
really wonderful wine: the longer this stays open the more it opens up into great earthy, vegetal, and dirty qualities without loosing any of the fruit that is brewing just beneath these almost fresh forest floor smells. So great, medium bodied, well balanced tannins.
Black as night. I mean you can't even shine a spot light through the glass. Loads of pepper and cured meat on the nose. Big black and blue fruit, pepper, spice, and acid on the palate. Big tannins are almost overpowering.
