2003 M. Chapoutier "Les Varonniers" Crozes-Hermitage (Previously $90)

SKU #1172525 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Looking first at his Crozes Hermitage, and a wine that will stand toe to toe with any number of Hermitages, the 2003 Crozes Hermitage Les Varonniers offers thrilling black fruits, saddle leather, spice and cured meat-like qualities to go with a sexy, full-bodied, and layered profile on the palate. It will continue to evolve gracefully, but there’s no reason to delay gratification and I’d enjoy this fabulous Syrah over the coming couple of years. (JD) Inner quote mark (4/2014)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Very ripe, but racy too, with dark blackberry, fig and boysenberry flavors running along bittersweet cocoa and mineral notes. Long, fleshy, dark fruit-filled finish has a great minerally spine. (JM) Inner quote mark (5/2006)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Dark red. Meaty, ripe aromas of dark plum compote, chocolate and roasted coffee. Large-scaled and thick, with a density and weight that are almost too much. Finishes with deep notes of dark chocolate and espresso. (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2006)
