Review: *+ $$ M. Chapoutier Petite Ruche Crozes-Hermitage, France, 2006

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for M. Chapoutier Petite Ruche Crozes-Hermitage.


Original tasting and review : This is M. Chapoutier Petite Ruche Crozes-Hermitage, France, 2006, finished at 13% alcohol and first sampled eight years from vintage date, in November, 2014.

In the glass: Deep dusty brick red.

On the nose: Poured at cool room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows full but oxidized fruit.  From the aroma, seems like this will be tired.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact demonstrating that this wine has seen far better days.  Cabbage-filled fat, fleshy fruit convince me I am "enjoying" this several years past its prime.

In summary: Overall, rates only one star with a plus for its potential sturdier past on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.
