Wine tasting notes

Lovely and vibrant Syrah character with a substantial and dense palate and great, well sustained flavour and length. Fine tannins and loads of potential for development . Northern Rhone Syrah at its best expression.

The medium to full-bodied 2015 Crozes Hermitage Terre d'Eclat is a fine effort. Aged in barrel, it offers hints of smoke entwined around dark fruit, with a rich, velvety mouthfeel and savory touches of espresso and clove on the lingering finish.

Less fragrant than their Inspiration, and more brooding and firm on the palate too. Chunky-knit tannin, fine acidic spine, dense black fruits. One of the few 2016 Crozes-Hermitage reds which really needs a few years before opening. (RH)
