2017 Crozes-Hermitage, 'Domaine de Thalabert', Paul Jaboulet Aîné

From the south of the appellation comes this charming Crozes-Hermitage. It’s so approachable, with delicacy and tension, violets and crunchy cherry fruit. Outstanding at the price.

TASTING NOTES

From a scorcher of a vintage that had tiny yields, the 2017 Crozes Hermitage Domaine De Thalabert offers a deep purple color as well as a classic Thalabert bouquet of black fruits, black olive, iodine, and peppery herbs. It’s a rich, rounded, sumptuous beauty that has plenty of sweet fruit, moderate tannins, and a great finish. It’s not going to match the 2015, but it’s a rocking wine I’d be thrilled to drink.
