James Molesworth, Wine Spectator Insider: 92 points 2011 Les Varonniers

M. Chapoutier Crozes-Ermitage Les Varonniers 2011
92 points

Alluring, with warm ganache and smoldering charcoal notes forming the frame. A core of steeped plum and black currant fruit waits in reserve for now. Reveals a loamy edge on the finish, balanced by well-embedded acidity. Should stretch out with modest cellaring. Best from 2015 through 2022.—James Molesworth
