2010 Crozes-Hermitage Le Clos, Delas Frères

Robert Parker: “The top cuvee of Crozes-Hermitage is Le Clos. The inky/purple-colored 2010 Crozes-Hermitage Le Clos reveals some reduction along with high acid and huge amounts of fresh fruit. However, it is extremely unevolved and retarded in development. I will be able to more fully evaluate it next year.”

With an impressive female winemaker, Claire Darnaud, at the helm since 2010 (though with experience there dating back to 1996), and considerable investment in the cellar to move to the historic town centre, the wines here are some of the more refined in the region. Careful never to use more than 40% new oak, Claire is a master of her craft.
