2016 Crozes-Hermitage Le Clos, Delas Frères

2016 Crozes-Hermitage Le Clos, Delas Frères

Bin end

Unusually for Crozes, this comes from a single block on fine gravel soil. It’s wonderfully elegant and driven, with so much texture. There are violets and pure black fruit in wonderful balance. Precise and finely judged.

Also from this producer


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.
