Arnoux & Fils Petites Collines Crozes-Hermitage 2014

This is another lovely wine in the Roberson Wine Christmas sale. It’s just lovely: benchmark Crozes from a negotiant working traditionally in the south.

Arnoux & Fils Crozes-Hermitage ‘Petites Collines’ 2014 Northern Rhône, France
12.5% alcohol. Arnoux are a negociant based in Vacqueyras, and they make wines traditionally: fermentation in concrete vats followed by maturation in large foudres. This Crozes is lovely: it’s fresh and perfumed with some black pepper adding interest to the textured black cherry and blackberry palate. It’s just so well balanced and typical: harmony is achieved, and this could only come from the northern Rhône. A super bargain. 91/100 (£12.99 Roberson, reduced from £18)

The excellent Sunier Fleurie 2015 is also in this sale.
