One of the best wines I’ve had all year. Yes, it doesn’t aspire to the same heights and glory as the recent Bonneau or Lafite, but I bet I could serve this blind to any wine geek and they’d think I am serving them $100/bottle wine. The depth of the fruit in this wine, the freshness, the spiciness, and the perfect mix of velvety and silky textures are simply amazing. And it’s even more astounding that I paid $24 for this years ago. I should have bought cases of this and even then, it still wouldn’t be enough. If you can buy this well-stored, it’s worth picking some up. This Crozes has many years of improvement ahead of it.
