Cave de Tain Les Hauts du Fief Crozes-Hermitage 2015

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  958843

A selection of old vine parcels, the 2015 Crozes-Hermitage Les Hauts Du Fief comes from the more granite, northern part of the appellation and was brought up in 40% new 400-liter barrels. Its deep purple plum color is followed by a terrific bouquet of black fruits, licorice, roasted herbs and ample minerality. With impressive purity, integrated acidity, plenty of toasty oak and ripe tannin, it too needs 2-3 years of cellaring to show its ultimate potential. Maturity: 2021-2036. Score - 93+.
