WTN: Crozes Hermitage, 'Tiercerolles', 2010

by Mark S » Tue Dec 31, 2013 12:40 am

Not sure what to put down for the producer: no mention of a grower but the back label says "Blended by Kermit Lynch - Eleve and bottled by Louis Barroul". Ripe woodsy nose, very Cali-like with ripe fruits and 'sexy oak'. Soft in the mouth and flat on the finish with soft plum, tomato six-pack and a finish of oak. B/B+ initially, but moves on up the 2nd & 3rd day to a B+/A- when more delineation is forthcoming...from whence, I know not where. 13%

From what I've seen (and Parker's vintage chart) both '09 and '10 were excellent years in the northern Rhone.
Cave de Tain makes a nice basic C-H and the J. Vidal Fleury '10 Crozes-Hermitage is particularly appealing.
