Domaine Jean-Claude et Nicolas Fayolle, La Rochette Crozes-Hermitage 2015, Rhône, France
Tasting Note: A solid Rhône blend made by an independent producer.
Deep-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of black plum, black currant and kirsch.
On the palate, the dry, full-bodied Rhône-blend expresses black fruit flavors suggested on the nose along with some tart red-fruit flavors.
There is some mid-palate complexity and chalk running through out the length of the taste which is buoyed by medium-plus acidity and ripe, medium-plus tannin.
