Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2013 Crozes Hermitage les Varonniers is brilliant. Coming from the western edge of Hermitage's Bessards lieu-dit (this is a cool, west-facing parcel of granite soils), its deep ruby/purple color is followed by classic granite-induced aromas and flavors of burning embers, cassis, licorice, spring flower and pepper. This Mini-Hermitage is medium-bodied, nicely concentrated and has building tannic grip; it will drink well for 10-15 years.
