2010 Crozes Hermitage, Nouvelere, P & V Jaboulet

The Crozes Hermitage Nouvelère is sourced from 70 year old vines, the oldest in Les Grandes Vignes which is littered with large boulders. The resulting wine is aged in small oak and larger barrels for around 26 months. Production hovers around 15,000 bottles a year.

It's about as intense and fruit driven as Crozes gets, and now at a good drinking age having had a few years to mellow.
