Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, November 2012

    The powerfully structured Cuvée Gaby revels in its rich and concentrated style. A full and rounded wine with lots of dark berry spices and a long sweet fruit finish.

    Robert Parker, December 2012,
    Score: 92-94

    A superstar of the appellation is undeniably the 2011 Crozes-Hermitage Cuvee Gaby. Boasting a black/purple color along with charcoal, creme de cassis, forest floor and black olive characteristics, this deep, full-bodied, textured, super-impressive Crozes should be enjoyed over the next decade.

    Copious charged wine, has more intent and content than many, a bold glass filler. Drink 2014 - 2023.

  • JR

    Jancis Robinson, February 2013,
    Score: 16

    Pretty spicy. Oaky, but lively fruit underneath. Tastes richer than at a tasting the day before. Drink 2013-2016 (JH)

Producer

Domaine du Colombier

This 16 hectare estate is run by brothers Florent and David Viale and produces a dark, bold interpretation of Hermitage. These wines are brawny and powerful, and have a distinctive flavour palette of black fruits, black olive tapenade, and graphite smokiness. Although grape growers for almost a century, the family only began to bottle their own wines in the early 1990s. Their wines may take a little time to come around, but will reward in the long run.

Region

Crozes-Hermitage

The northern Rhône's largest appellation, Crozes-Hermitage produces approximately 8 times more than its more distinguished neighbour, Hermitage. Crozes, too, has both red and whites similar to Hermitage and in many ways is very similar in style, though less concentrated and complex. Plump, silky and smooth, they are usually made for early consumption; however certain producers have been known to make Crozes-Hermitages which need to cellared for several years and can be further kept for up to a decade.
