Crozes-Hermitage Rouge, Cave de Clairmont, Les Palais 2016

Incredible Crozes-Hermitage for this price. We were so surprised when we were told the price after tasting, especially considering this is from one of the best Rhône vintages in a long time. We have a small allocation for the 2016, this is a no-brainer for Rhône fans…The perfect accompaniment for red meats, stews and summer barbeques. Claimont go through two different macerations to maintain the pure fruit of the syrah and achieve a beautiful tannic structure. A selection of these two macerations is then made in order to obtain a well-balanced wine. Brilliant value wine considering the care and precision taking during the wine making.


Our Tasting Notes

An intense deep purple colour. The nose is expressive with aromas of fresh blackcurrant and strawberry. The palate is clear and powerful at the beginning and then reveals some ripe black fruits. The final is long and fresh.
