Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml
Looking even better than it did last year, the 2017 Crozes Hermitage Domaine des Grands Chemins boasts layers of dreamy black cherries and red-skinned plums. Medium to full-bodied, it's creamy textured and lush on the mid-palate, turning silky and adding dried-spice notes on the long, easy-drinking finish. Tasted twice (once blind), with consistent notes.
This has a slightly reductive nose with slate, dark plums and blackberries, as well as some earthy and spicy complexity. The palate is super supple and sleek with a wealth of vibrant tannin and a smooth, cherry and plum core. Drink or hold.
Coming all from the Les Chassis region and aged 14 months in barrel, the 2017 Crozes-Hermitage Domaine Des Grands Chemins reveals a deep purple/plum hue as well as terrific notes of black (and some blue) fruits, graphite, liquid violets, and crushed stone. It's medium-bodied, has a silky texture, solid mid-palate depth, and a great finish. This forward, seamless, seductive Crozes will drink brilliantly for 7-8 years or more.
