2021 Franck Balthazar Crozes Hermitage
From 37 year old vines, 15 days and kept in barrels for 10 months. Long, grimy, edgy; filled with tons of herbs and spice.
92 Points Vinous: Deep, glistening ruby. Aromas of spice-accented dark berries and cherry, with a smoky nuance that builds in the glass. Silky and broad on the palate, offering juicy black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors with a hint of candied flowers. Finishes youthfully taut and long, with repeating florality and polished tannins that add shape and firming grip
