Deep ruby. Lively, mineral-accented aromas of fresh dark berries and pungent flowers. Spicy and focused on the palate, offering sappy blackberry and violet pastille flavors and a touch of smokiness. Becomes fleshier with air while maintaining energy and focus. Finishes silky and long, showing very good clarity, well-knit tannins and building spiciness. Drink: 2020-2025 (Jul17)
90 points | Josh Raynolds,

The Robin family have grown grapes in Crozes-Hermitage for generations, but until 1995 they were always sold to the local cooperative in Tain l’Hermitage. In just over 10 years Gilles now estate bottles his entire production and consistently produces some of the very best wines of this appellation. Gilles has just 15 hectares, however most of those vineyards are fully mature at more than 40 years old.
