2010 Crozes-Hermitage Rouge, Maison Nicolas Perrin

Crozes-Hermitage Rouge, Maison Nicolas Perrin
Sourced from two growers, one of whom is fundamentally bio-dynamic in approach, this Crozes comes predominantly from the Mercurol commune. The average age of the vines is over thirty years. Elegant and poised, with blackberries and pepper, cherries and cloves all evidenced, this is an attractive and nicely structured wine.
Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer, February 2012

The alliance of two of the greatest houses of the Rhône, Jaboulet and Perrin, with Nicholas Jaboulet at its helm, was always a very promising one. The promise has quickly materialised and the 2010s are even better than the already excellent 2009s. The best sites and the best growers have been harnessed. As Nicolas eloquently puts it, the Perrins at Beaucastel exploit many different grapes on fundamentally the same terroir, but his goal here is to cultivate what is essential the same grape (albeit dependent on the colour of the wine) but in differing terroirs.

Bottled October 2011. All from the plain. They have bought a bit of land here so it’s their flagship appellation. Meaty and very fruity and charming. Easy and a bit blobby.

More austere, the 2010 Crozes-Hermitage exhibits notes of tapenade, earth, licorice, bouquet garni, and red as well as black cherries. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.
