A red wine from Crozes-Ermitage with tight and fine tannins

From a plot selection in the Crozes-Ermitage appellation, the Crozes-Ermitage "Le Grand Courtil" of Ferraton Père & Fils is a red wine made with Syrah. Aged around 20 years on average, the vines benefit from granitic and gravelly soils at the top of a hillside and clay and limestone at the bottom. The wine is aged in barrels (with a proportion of 20 to 30% new barrels) for 12 to 14 months, depending on the year.

The Crozes-Ermitage "Le Grand Courtil" 2016 by Ferraton Père & Fils presents a crystal clear, intense ruby colour. The nose exudes aromas of ripe red berries and notes of leather. Generous on the palate, the wine reveals flavours of jammy red fruits. The tannins are rather tight but show maturity, married to a subtle woody vanilla. The finish is extremely long.

Please note, as this wine evolves naturally, this comment may be called into question.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The medium to full-bodied 2016 Crozes Hermitage Le Grand Courtil offers up notes of black olives and cedar alongside hints of mocha and caramel. It's creamy and supple across the mid-palate, then turns firm, dry and savory on the long finish. Give it another couple of years to soften.
