Parker : 93 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
From 50-year-old vines in Pont de l'Isère, the 2017 Crozes Hermitage Clos des Grives offers up scents of black tea, mocha and ripe plums. It's full-bodied, plush and supple on the palate, showing ample concentration and length on the long, mouthwatering finish. It's a terrific Syrah, approachable now and capable of drinking well for at least another 6-7 years.
