Buy Darnaud Crozes-Hermitage 2012****
Deep gleaming ruby red. A lovely aromatic complexity with cherry and violet, ending on notes of mocha and spices. The mouth brings out fine, silky lingering tannins. This is a wine with elegance, fineness and delicacy.
Wine Advocate 91 points - A major sleeper of the vintage, this opaque purple-colored 2009 Crozes-Hermitage reveals notes of melted road tar, black truffles, graphite, blackberries, cassis, charcoal and roasted herbs. This full-bodied, stunning effort should drink nicely for 10-15 years. ” (Feb 2011)

Emmanuel Darnaud started his domaine in 2001 with just 1.3 hectares of vines but now has 15 hectares, all in Crozes-Hermitage. His painstaking work in the vineyard and regard for the fruit in the vinification process have ensured his place amongst the "big boys” with his first 2001 vintage. The quality of his wines has earned him great praise in French and international revues, as well as a place in many Michelin-starred restaurants. "If you like dark, rich, smoky-styled Syrah, this is a domaine for you to try."J. Molesworth.
