What the Critics say
I don't know if it's just the effect of the vintage or a renewed commitment to his Crozes, but Sorrel's 2018 Crozes Hermitage is the best I've ever tasted at this address. Like all the reds this year, it was fermented as whole clusters, and so while there's a slight stemmy component, there's plenty of ripe black cherries and raspberries for balance. Full-bodied and silky, it shows lovely texture, complexity and length.
Marc Sorrel took over the Sorrel Domaine from his father in 1982. While he was thrown headfirst into the deep end after his father’s death Marc has managed to create a brand that can consider itself to be an outstanding producer of refined, traditional Hermitage wines. Marc is a fierce traditionalist and his philosophy is non-interventionist, which is reflected in the style of wine he makes – full, well structured and long lived.
