Wine Spectator 90 FOR THE 2017 VINTAGE
Bright plantain, pineapple and yellow apple gelée notes give this a fun and bouncy feel, with a flash of heather knitting the elements together on the finish. Drink now. 1,250 cases made.
The Wine Advocate 91 FOR THE 2017 VINTAGE
A blend of 80% Marsanne and 20% Roussanne, the 2017 Crozes Hermitage Blanc was fermented in stainless steel and demi-muids (half in each). It's plump and round, with ripe notes of melon, pear and pineapple and a luscious, silky texture. It finishes long, thanks to a refreshing hint of citrus zest.
