2017 Ferraton Père et Fils "La Matinière" Crozes-Hermitage

SKU #1442954 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Atypically firm and structured for this cuvée, the medium to full-bodied 2017 Crozes Hermitage La Matinière boasts terrific aromas of violets, crushed stone, blueberries and licorice. It looks like a solid repeat of the 2015. (JC) Inner quote mark (12/2018)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Dark violet. Pungent dark berries, potpourri, olive paste and cracked pepper on the deeply perfumed nose. Broad and weighty on the palate, offering smoke-accented blackberry and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of candied licorice. Finishes on a repeating dark fruit note, showing good energy, rounded tannins and smoky persistence. (JR) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

90 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The entry-level wine from Crozes is the 2017 Crozes-Hermitage La Matinière , which was aged a year in used oak. It offers a Côte Rôtie-like perfume of spring flowers, bacon fat, raspberries, and toasted spices to go with a medium-bodied, seamless, fleshy, undeniably delicious style. Despite plenty of upfront charm, it has solid tannins as well and will keep for 5-7 years. Inner quote mark (12/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Cask sample. Tasted blind. Stunning aromatic range on the nose, with rosemary and lavender herbal character as well as black-pepper spice, black-cherry fruit and a savoury, leather note. Impressive and opulent. 17/20 points. (RH) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

This has an exceptionally expressive nose of flowers, meat, smoke and raspberries. With some time in a decanter, it unveils the savory side of Syrah, with notes of dried herbs, black pepper and blackberry confiture. This is a precise representation of northern Rhône Syrah that pairs wonderfully with garlic-heavy dishes.

Ferraton has really come on the scene in the last few years under the stewardship of Michel Chapoutier. The overall set has developed in richness, weight and superb regional character. This entry level Crozes is one of the superb values in their entire portfolio. Pure Syrah, this has an explosive nose of lavendar, incense and spicy red fruit. The palate has weight but is not too heavy, the tannins are supple. This is a wonderful drink now but should continue to evolve and develop for a decade more. All this and it's under $20? You'd be hard pressed to find a better Syrah value, this classic and pure, anywhere else in the world.
