Domaine Belle Cuvée Louis Belle Crozes-Hermitage 2016

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  645200

Bottled just one week before my visit, the 2016 Crozes Hermitage Cuvee Louis Belle comes from the Belle family's home village of Larnage. It offers scents of crushed stone and pencil shavings, plum and raspberry compote, even a bit of Christmas spice. Medium to full-bodied, it's supple and velvety enough to drink now, with enough concentrated fruit to think it will age well through at least 2025. Score - 92. (Joe Czerwinski,, Oct. 31, 2018)
