M. Chapoutier 1999 Petite Ruche (Crozes-Hermitage)

This Crozes-Hermitage caused some dissention among our panelists. While some reviewers found the nose “handsome and complex,” with dark chocolate, licorice, plum and hickory smoke aromas, one panelist criticized it as having a sour, manufactured Pixy-Stix quality. Comments on the mouthfeel ran the gamut from lean to full; most agreed, at least, that the palate showed tart blackberry, leather and licorice flavors.
