/ Bright ruby. Spicy dark berries and cherry on the nose, with subtle licorice and tobacco character building with air. Solid red and dark fruit flavors show good depth and a solid framework, finishing withdecent sweetness but drying tannins.
/ This straddles the Old and New worlds, offering lots of fresh, juicy cherry and black plum fruit against a spicy, ferrous background. It's as intense as the fuchsia-ringed color suggests, a Crozes for roast game.
Les Fees Brunes 2010 - 92 points, Wine Review Online/ ): Jean-Luc Colombo 2010 “Les Fees Brunes” Crozes-Hermitage is a result of Jean-Luc’s stellar stewardship of the vines. Crozes-Hermitage, a few miles up the river Rhone from Tain-l’Hermitage, is the largest appellation of the northern Rhone and the least revered, at least in comparison to nearby Cote-Rotie and Hermitage. This wine comes from a single-vineyard site situated on a steep hillside. It is farmed naturally, without pesticides, and it stands out from most other wines of Crozes-Hermitage. The vineyard is 100 percent syrah. The 2010, from Jean-Luc describes as one of the three best vintages in his winemaking experience, is beautifully structured, exhibiting firm tannins that support silky layers of plum and blueberry aroma, with a hint of spicy oak. Considering Colombo’s top wines retail for more than $80 a bottle, this one is a steal. It should age exceptionally well over the next 10 years, and the alcohol –by-volume (ABV) is a modest 13 percent.
Les Fees Brunes Crozes Hermitage 2009 - 90 points, Wine & Spirits/ Balanced and succulent, this has a clean earthiness that brings extra savor to the black raspberry fruit. It’s complete and lasting with a bewitching violet note, a Crozes to drink this winter with a pork roast or to hold for another eight to ten years.
Crozes Hermitage "Les Fees Brunes" 2009 - 90 points, International Wine Cellar/ Saturated ruby. Cherry and blackberry on the pungent, floral-accented nose. Juicy and precise, offering lively black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and building smokiness. Finishes bright and long, with resonating pepper and floral notes and very good cut.
Cote Rotie La Divine 2005 - 91 Points, International Wine Review/ Medium ruby in color, La Divine is predominantly Syrah with 5 percent Viognier. Black cherry fruit, tobacco, and licorice aromas lead to a soft, round attack and a focused palate showing clean, and beautifully integrated, flavors of spicy dark cherry and smoky tobacco. Finishes long with fine-grained tannins, cherry and smoke.
Imported New Releases/ An enchanting scent of white flowers and plums rises from this plush, fruity, Cote-Rotie, a rich wine that shows the ripeness of the vintage. Traditionalists need not buy; hedonists should scoop it up.
