En Primeur Crozes-Hermitage Domaine du Colombier is available for sale.
Winemaker Florent Viale continues to grow the reputation of his family’s domaine, aging the Hermitage wines for up to a year and a half before release in larger oak barrels (tonneaux) which allows the terroir to express itself. Never using more than 20% new oak, Florent’s wines are elegant despite their power and concentration.
“Cask sample. Tasted blind. Crude, overbaked black fruit on the nose. Fibrous and full in structure. Peppery finish. Seems a bit unkempt at present.”
16+ points, Richard Hemming MW, jancisrobinson.com, November 2018.
