M Chapoutier, Les Varonniers 2018 Crozes-Hermitage

16.5

Rich and meaty, with the force and weight more like Hermitage than Crozes. The peppery notes are smothered in rich, powerful fruit. Beautifully toned tannins, very drinkable now, but subtle it ain't. Almost more like southern Grenache than northern Syrah! (RH)
