91pointsJean-Claude et Nicolas Fayolle 2016 La Rochette (Crozes-Hermitage)

While medium-bodied in frame, this densely packed Syrah heaves with luscious, almost pulpy, black-cherry and blueberry flavors. Its rounded, fleshy nature is amplified by sunny acidity and smooth, gentle tannins, but bright streaks of violet and crushed granite invigorate the midpalate. It's ready to drink now but should hold through 2026. Anna Lee C. Iijima
